Vladas Jakub?nas (1904-76) was one of the major cultural figures in pre-World War Two Lithuania: he was a prominent composer, critic, teacher and musical activist.

After the Second World War he was one of the many Baltic composers exiled to the USA, in his instance Chicago.

As a student of Schreker in Berlin in 1928-32, he initially wrote in a neo-Classical style - as most of the works on this CD attest - and was nicknamed 'the Lithuanian Hindemith'.

Back home in the mid-1930s he began to compose in a late-Romantic, gently modernist idiom, tinged with the influence of Lithuanian folk-music.

This is the first recording of the music on this CD.
