Baroque Music with a Difference!
and Baroque music of Western Europe have in common? The answer lies in this specially composed
international chamber music ensemble, Reversio. The idea behind the ensemble, to play early European music using original Lithuanian instruments, became their mark of originality, while the expressive and contrasting sounds of the birbynė are surprisingly similar to early wind instruments, such as the cornetto (zink), recorder, baroque oboe and chalumeau. While performing the early music the birbynė reveals nuances and colours unheard so far; it highlights the flexibility of compositions and offers a new look at the early music as well as other musical genres, be it classical or contemporary.
