GRAZINYTE, LITHUANIAN NATIONAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA, PITRENAS
"Onute Grazinyte and the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra under Modestas Pitrenas play Pärt’s music – especially the main work Lamentate – very expressively and communicatively. It is a pure distillate of music that echoes and has an effect long after the last sounds have been heard" wrote pizzicato about the album that was released in September 2020 in honor of Arvo Pärt’s 85th birthday and awarded it the "Supersonic.” The Gramophone Magazine stated “This is a wondrously thought-provoking anthology of Pärt’s work. […] You cannot buy that kind of innocent beauty but you can, and should, buy this disc." The acclaimed recording of Pärt's "Lamentate" with which Onute Grazinyte marked her recording debut will now be released on vinyl in a limited and numbered 180g edition of 1.000 copies. It will supplemented with Grazinyte's wonderful interpretation of Pärt's piano works "Pari intervallo" and "Für Anna Maria - Nachdenklich". About her playing, pizzicato added in their review: "The longer you listen to the pianist, the more you feel how well and safely she moves in Pärt’s musical universe."
