Evelina Puzaité, a concert pianist, originally from Lithuania, and oboe maestro Andrius Puskunigis, also Lithuanian, are travelling from London and France respectively this week, especially to perform their Scottish Premiere in at the 2011 Festival of Spirituality and Peace in Edinburgh.
There is more on their background here. Evelina and Andrius will play pieces from their new Schumann CD, interspersed with a variety of international musical greats – Chopin, Rachmaninov, Liszt, Rossini, Piazzolla, and Prokofiev.
Both performers are convinced that music can play a significant role in awakening the human spirit and bringing a longing for harmony and peace in a troubled world.
The concert takes place at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, Palmerston Place, Edinburgh, on Friday 26 August 2011, at 7.30pm. Tickets £10 / £8 (children free) from the Hub: 0131 473 2000 www.hubtickets.co.uk or on the door.
