Raminta Šerkšnytė


Photo: Narimantas Šerkšnys

In Raminta Šerkšnytė's work, emotional musical language seamlessly fits together with rational structures which are based on symmetry of harmony, rhythm and texture. Colourful instrumentation, intensive rhythm, multilayered texture and polymodal harmony are all charateristic of her compositions. The main sources of inspiration for the composer are a broad spectrum of certain states of mind – kind of musical archetypes: from calm meditation (Aurei Regina Caeli), air of mystery (Misterioso), and nostalgic, melancholic moods (Adieu), to dramatic expression (Idée fixe) and outbursts of vital energy (Vortex). On the other hand, many of her compositions tend to colourful soundscapes seemingly inspired by the exalted reflection of nature (of course, titles of such works as Oriental ElegyMountains in the Mist, or Midsummer Song always carry figurative, symbolic meanings as well). In her own words, a composition is an uplifted state of mind, materialized by means of sounds, and its impressiveness depends on the composer's technical mastery.
