Artūras Anusauskas

One of the most distinguished Lithuanian jazz pianists, Artūras Anusauskas has been active as a soloist, composer and band leader. Sharing his sympathies between jazz and classical music, he is particularly nimble at combining the elements of both in his compositions. As a pianist, he has developed a remarkable sensitivity for the aesthetics of sound, as well as a technical finesse and an expertise in classical jazz piano styles. His playing characteristically involves polyphonic voice leading, governed by the influence of academic music. For almost two decades on Lithuanian jazz scene, the pianist currently performs solo and with his quartet. Besides composing and arranging, Artūras Anusauskas also teaches jazz improvisation at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre. Some of his original compositions, such as the ballad Išgirsk mane (Hear Me) or Nuotaka upė (River Bride), are likely to become Lithuanian jazz standards.
