Leader of Kaunas Symphony Orchestra about the worldwide recognition: that was unexpected

Kaunas City Symphony Orchestra, which celebrates ten years anniversary, received extremely good news from the New York City. The studio album of Giuseppe Verdi’s opera “Simon Boccanegra” which was recorded in Kaunas has been acknowledged by the influential magazine “Opera News” as the best album in the world.

 Mr. Algimas Treikauskas, the leader of the Kaunas City Symphony Orchestra, said that everybody who works hard expects that the endeavour will be appreciated. During the same year Orchestra has recorded one more album that was nominated for Grammy Awards. Probably that leaded them to success. According to Mr. Algimas Treikauskas, he wasn’t expecting that the studio album of “Simon Boccanegra” will be appreciated so high. “I’m pleased that the name of Kaunas City and Lithuania is proclaimed worldwide” – he said.

“City that has 300 thousands residents must have its symphony orchestra. Kaunas City Symphony Orchestra is the quality sign of the city. I cannot imagine Kaunas without it.” – Mr. Algimas Treikauskas added.
