Recipient of the Queen’s Commendation for Excellence at the Royal Academy of Music, prize-winning young Lithuanian pianist Ignas Maknickas was a winner in the 2023 YCAT International Auditions. Framed by more familiar works from Schumann and Chopin, his programme also includes some of the lushly post-Romantic Preludes by the Ukrainian-born Sergei Bortkiewicz and Five Bagatelles by Australian composer Carl Vine, climaxing in a lament for the victims of AIDS.
