Lithuanian-born violinist Egle Jarkova is the winner of several prestigious national and international competitions. She has performed widely throughout Europe, in Carnegie Hall, and the greater Boston area. Ms. Jarkova holds a Bachelors degree and Graduate Performance Diploma from Boston Conservatory, and a Masters degree from Boston University. She is on the violin faculty at the Brookline Music School, and is the founder of the International Summer Music Festival Vivace Vilnius, in Lithuania.
Adrienne Elisha is a gifted composer and violist. She has received numerous grants and commissions. Her works have been featured on national and international stages at numerous concerts and music festivals. Her Lithuanian Dances (2009) were commissioned by the NCO under a grant from the Zylonis Trust Fund. Ms. Elisha says: “It was my intent to create a work which celebrates traditional Lithuanian folk songs and dances in a concert piece.” In a glorious mastery of sonic painting, Ms. Elisha uses an artist’s palette of instrumental timbres to create a canvas of vivid colors, conjuring images of Lithuanian culture embedded in picturesque landscapes.
