Jurgis Juozapaitis

"I always found it most interesting to watch the orchestra and to guess the secrets of its sound." - says Jurgis Juozapaitis. Already in his early works, the composer - who made his name with a number of orchestral pieces (the symphonies Rex, 1973, and Zodiacus, 1977) - has focused on sound colour. The evolution of his musical style in the 1970s reveals the impact of dodecaphonic, quarter-tone and aleatory music; in the 1980s-90s, alongside expressive atonal works, Juozapaitis was also writing pieces akin to the aesthetics of neoromanticism and minimalism. There is no dominating trend in Jurgis Juozapaitis' music in recent years; he continues to favour a diversity of technique instead of the restraining framework of any sterile system. "I'm moving away from numerically based logic, from constructivism. It's much more important to feel intuitively the free flow of the music, the right moment of inspiration."
