Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis is one of the biggest greats that Lithuania has ever had. A distinguished composer, mystic painter and a rebellious man is just a terse textbook-like description of the artist. Darius Kučinskas, an art researcher and professor of Kaunas University of Technology, has devoted 25 years scrutinizing the magnetic artist and his distinctive legacy.
The International M. K. Čiurlionis Music Festival has started in Palanga. It was regarded as one of the main events of last year’s Palanga - Culture Capital of Lithuania programme by Lithuanian listeners and foreign guests alike.
