“If this music transports you into a haunting, mysterious dream world, don’t worry about it – it’s only doing its job.”
– Ingram Marshall

This CD presents the premiere recording of Žibuoklė Martinaitytė’s hauntingly immersive 70-minute "In Search of Lost Beauty…," performed by the prize-winning Lithuanian piano trio FortVio. This major work is composed for piano, violin, cello, electronic soundtrack, and synchronized video projections.

Martinaitytė remarks the work “is a sequence of audiovisual novellas on the elusive subject of beauty – an attempt to recreate the experience in which time is slowed down in order to transport us into an alternate dimension.”

Ingram Marshall concludes, “Martinaitytė has created a world of hidden beauty in a bridge-like form that begs you to enter.”

About Žibuoklė Martinaitytė

Described by WQXR as a “textural magician,” Martinaitytė “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).

Her music has been compared to “Arvo Pärt’s minimalism” (San Francisco Classical Voice) and “Gyorgy Ligeti’s tough, eerie, tribal sounds” (Feast of Music).

With her “virtuosity and a convincingly alluring rhetoric,” VivaVoce Magazine states, “it is no surprise that Martinaitytė's music is rapidly captivating the attention of international audiences.”
