World of the Piano
Lithuanian pianist Ieva Jokubaviciute’s powerfully and intricately crafted performances have earned her critical acclaim throughout North America and Europe. Her ability to communicate the essential substance of a work has led critics to describe her as possessing ‘”razor-sharp intelligence and wit” and “subtle, complex, almost impossibly detailed and riveting in every way” (The Washington Post).
In the fall of 2016, Jokubaviciute began a collaboration with the violinist Midori, with recitals in Canada, at the Cartagena International Music Festival in Columbia, and in Germany and Austria. Since, they have given recitals in Japan, Germany, Austria, Poland, Peru, Columbia, Mexico, India and Sri Lanka.
Jokubaviciute’s latest piano solo recording Northscapes (2020) weaves works written within the last decade by composers from the Nordic and Baltic countries of Europe into a tapestry of soundscapes that echo the reverberations between landscape, sound and the imagination.
