Asta Krikšciunaite, soprano

The beauty and clarity of ASTA KRIKŠČIŪNAITĖ’s (soprano) voice were noticed at a very early stage – she was awarded a Diploma at L. Pavarotti International Voice Competition in Philadelphia (USA); later she furthered her professional skills in the USA, where she studied under the tutelage of famous vocal teachers.

The sophisticated palette of the singer’s voice – from gentle lyricism to profound dramatism – offers the ability to perform the music of various genres. During her professional career, she has performed operas, oratorios, chamber music, Lied, and contemporary works, among others. Krikščiūnaitė has created memorable roles in opera theaters and has performed under the baton Lord Y. Menuhin, M. Rostropovich, A. Volmer, A. Mustonen, M. Sidlin, K. Penderecki, J. Domarkas, S. Sondeckis, K. Cord, P. Berman, and F. Zehnder.

The soloist collaborates with Lithuanian and foreign symphonic and chamber orchestras, and has performed in prestigious concert halls and at European music festivals, such as Musica Sacra Nuremberg, Ljubljana Festival, Potsdam Sanssouci, Rheingau, Kammermusikfest Hopfgarten, Ch. Milosz Festivali in Krakow, among others. Krikščiūnaitė’s performances have been highly valued at the Warsaw National Philharmonic, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, the Luxembourg Palace, the French Senate in Paris, the Royal Palace and the Music University in Warsaw, the Black Diamond Hall in Copenhagen, the Essen Philharmonic Hall, the Tampere Concert Hall, the Great Hall of Tchaikovsky Moscow State Conservatory, the Glinka State Academy in St. Petersburg, the Slovenian Philharmonic, and collaborations with the Lithuanian, Polish, Estonian and Israeli National Operas.

Krikščiūnaitė’s performances have been broadcasted live on Euroradio, and her recordings played on BBC and BBC2, Norwegian P2, Lithuanian, Estonian, Israeli National, and Italian RAI radio stations.

Krikščiūnaitė’s merits in Lithuanian culture have been recognized by the Lithuanian National Culture and Art Prize. For her contributions to the Estonian and Polish culture, she has received the Order of the White Star of Estonia and the Honorary Prize of the Minister of Culture of the Republic of Poland. Krikščiūnaitė is professor and Head of the Department of Vocal Performance at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre.
