Zita Bružaitė

If Lithuania has a Haydn, her name is Zita Bružaitė. A resident of the country’s second largest city, Kaunas, she is a composer, musician, pedagogue, and festival administrator. She composes for adults, children, the stage, concert halls, and schools – based on demand and her own ideas. Though similar to Haydn in the wealth and wit of her ideas, and her aversion to hurting the ear, her music does not sound like his, other than perhaps in the piece called “Hi Haydn” for two oboes, bassoon and harpsichord. Zita Bružaitė has her own style, which includes components of jazz, and ethnic and medieval music and thinking.
