“Vytautas Bacevičius: The Complete Mots,” Gabrielius Alekna’s first CD on the “Toccata Classics” label, has been launched in London on January 25, 2012. More than half of the compositions on this CD are first recordings. In recording the works by Lithuania’s leading modernist and one of the undiscovered pioneers of twentieth-century music, Gabrielius Alekna collaborated with the two-time Grammy winning producer Judith Sherman and the three-time Grammy-nominated pianist Ursula Oppens.
Gabrielius Alekna is appointed a Visiting Associate Professor at the Music Academy of Vytautas Magnus University in Kaunas, Lithuania.
Gabrielius Alekna will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Mikalojus Konstantinas ?iurlionis with a North American recital tour that will take him this fall to 12 cities in Canada and the USA.
