Martinaityte, Žibuokle; FortVio

This release presents the premiere recording of Žibuokle Martinaityte's seductively immersive, 70-minute ''In Search of Lost Beauty…,'' performed by the stellar, prize-winning Lithuanian piano trio FortVio. Ingram Marshall writes, ''If this music transports you into a haunting, mysterious dream world, don’t worry about it – it’s only doing its job.'' Described by WQXR as a ''textural magician,'' Martinaityte ''writes stimulating music that bristles with energy and tension. Her orchestral and ensemble compositions are stratified, allusive, digressive and episodic [and] embody complex structures of perception and rich textures of experience'' (The Wire).
