  • This concert will feature vocal cycles by composers less known to Lithuanian listeners - Serge Bortkewitz (Austria) and Jozef Szulc (Poland) - set to the poems of the French poet Paul Verlaine.

    The poet's work reflects the tragedy of his own life, expressed through unique and innovative themes for that era, breaking from poetic conventions of form and rhythm to seek new expressions of musicality.

    Verlaine's verses will be performed in both vocal cycles, and the poems 'Un grand sommeil noir' ('A deep dark sleep'), 'Il pleure dans mon coeur' ('It rains in my heart'), and 'La lune blanche' ('The white moon') will be uniquely revealed in both composers' works.

    The program will be performed by Genadijus Bergorulko (bass) and Vaida Maulevičė (piano), complemented by Salomėja Petronytė (actress), who will expand on the subtleties of the poetry and the performance.


    Genadijus Bergorulko is a bass singer with a career spanning over 3 decades, recognized all over Europe. His solo discography includes recordings of musical opuses in Germany, Lithuania, Latvia, Panama, France, and Poland, with notably rarely performed operas among them – G. Donizetti 'Rita' (Gasparo), Ch. Gounod 'The Bloody Nun' (Baron de Moldaw) and J. Haydn 'The Fishermen' (Mastrico)

    Vaida Maulevičė is a pianist currently working as a concertmaster at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre (LMTA) who also participates in opera and operetta productions at the Opera Studio. She also accompanies future musical theatre students in the Department of Performing Arts at Vilnius College.

    Salomėja Petronytė is currently studying for a master's degree in chamber singing at the LMTA. In 2019, Salomėja participated as a music assistant and soloist in the opera-performance 'Sun and Sea' at the Lithuanian Pavilion of the Venice Biennale and has toured 25 cities across different continents with this project over the last three years. In addition to singing, Salomėja is also involved in composition; in 2019, she won third place in the young composers' competition for choirs 'Vox Juventutis', and her mixed choir piece 'What will they do' was published by the Lithuanian Composers' Union.
