In the opinion of classical music performers – the “Mettis” quartet and saxophonist, jazz performer and composer Kęstutis Vaiginis, it is impossible to fit the essence of music into the framework of different genres – music, like life, is multifaceted. The performers presented their program in the most famous concert halls not only in Lithuania but also abroad, such as Word Music Panama Festival, (Panama), Beijing jazz festival “Nine Gates Jazz Festival”, Changchun Jazz Festival, (China). In the program, listeners will hear the original compositions of Kęstutis Vaiginis, arranged for string quartet and the works of the most famous jazz legends and greats such as Chick Corea, Wayne Shorter, John Coltrane, Duke Ellington, Herbie Hancock and other famous composers and performers arranged for string quartet and for the saxophone. Also, the intimate part of the evening’s program will be Astor Piazzolla’s music, complemented by the colors of Argentine tango and jazz improvisations. We will enjoy not only the arrangement of Chick Corea’s “Spain” or the oriental melody “Misirlou” (from the soundtrack of Quentin Tarantino’s film “Pulp Fiction”), the version of which was created for the quartet by the French string quartet “Quatuor Ébène”, but also the ballads of John Coltrane and Wayne Shorter .
