Faustas Latėnas

Composer Faustas Latėnas belongs to a very distinct generation of fiftyish Lithuanian composers, which has once been labelled 'the neo-romanticists'. Along with Algirdas Martinaitis and Vidmantas Bartulis, Faustas Latėnas was a real enfant terrible, who transferred from the theatre millieu to his concert music exaggerated banality, irony, and musical hooliganism, always regarded with certain distrust by the academic community. "I have always regarded theatre as a refreshing current in my concert music, something like an islet where one is free to incarnate the most radical, banal, or quirky thoughts, because the attitude to theatre music has always been more lenient", says the composer.
