Viktoras Miniotas found himself in the context of Lithuanian music in the middle of 1990s, when he moved with his family from Russia to Lithuania. The talented composer became quite actively involved in contemporary music festivals, wrote several new compositions on mainly religious themes. In Miniotas' work one can feel particularly meticulous selection of the musical material, sometimes approaching minimalist expression. Its meditative sound is often juxtaposed with an expressive manner of talking, which achieves a dramatic break-through in culminations. At the present time the composer serves at the Russian Orthodox monastery and the Russian Orthodox Church of the Holy Spirit in Vilnius.
