About This Performance

“However impressive Jokubaviciute’s fingers were in the music’s execution, it is her brain that is most entrancing,” stated the Philadelphia Inquirer after the Lithuanian pianist’s last solo recital with PCMS. Her elegant and engaging playing exudes a signature blend of “essential beauty, balance, and haunting allure” (Washington Post), all of which are sure to be enhanced by this program devoted to the exploration of sound landscapes and fantasy. Of particular note is Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir’s Scape, a work performed in total darkness that demands extensive playing inside the instrument.
