As composer, critic, teacher and musical activist, Vladas Jakubenas (1904–76) was one of the major cultural figures in pre-World War Two Lithuania, before his post-War exile in the USA. As a student of Schreker in Berlin in 1928–32, he initially wrote in a Neoclassical style – as most of the works on this album attest – and was nicknamed ‘the Lithuanian Hindemith’. Back home, he began to compose in a late-Romantic, gently modernist idiom, tinged with the influence of Lithuanian folk-music.
 

"... the performances are most excellent ... this is a good portrait of an obscure but talented composer"

Stephen Estep - American Record Guide - September/October 2013


 "...I think this CD will be a happy surprise for almost any listener who gives it a chance."

Raymond S Tuttle - International Record Review - March 2013
