MŪZA RUBACKYTĖ (France Lituanie)

From Liszt's 24 studies to Shostakovich's 24 preludes and fugues, from the complete Years of Pilgrimage to the piano work of Čiurlionis, MŪZA meets all challenges with elegance and commitment
Mūza was born in Lithuania and lives between Paris, Vilnius and Geneva. After her studies at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow, she won the famous All Union competition in Saint Petersburg intended to elect the best musicians in the USSR, then the Grand Prize of the Budapest Liszt-Bartók international piano competition. Mūza joined the Lithuanian resistance, which led to her being deprived of a passport until 1989. Upon her arrival in Paris, she won first prize in piano in the international competition Les Grands Maîtres Français of the Association Triptyque. His international career leads him to play in recitals and concertos on stages and for major festivals in France and on the five continents where his path crosses great conductors and renowned orchestras. The composer K. Penderecki regularly invited her to perform his piano concerto Resurrection, a poignant work in tribute to the victims of September 11. Mūza is frequently called upon as a member of juries for the most popular competitions and provides international teaching. In Lithuania she received prestigious distinctions including the Legion of Honor for the promotion of her country in the world or the Grand Cross of Commander of the Order of Vytautas the Great for services rendered to the State. The Hungarian Ministry of Culture awarded her the Pro Cultura Hungarica prize and she chaired the Lithuanian Liszt LISZtuania Society. In 2009 Mūza created the Vilnius International Piano Festival of which she is artistic director. For this achievement, the City of Vilnius honors him with its highest decoration: the Saint Christopher for best cultural event. The next edition will be held in November 2023. In 2020/22 Mūza would like to pay tribute, on stage and on record, to his compatriot the pianist and composer Léopold Godowsky, on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of his birth near Vilnius. In the 20th century many “Litvak” (Lithuanian Jews) experienced exile, like Godowsky, who died in New York in 1938. Mūza’s repertoire spans more than forty programs in recital, concerto with orchestra or chamber music. His discography, which includes more than thirty-five titles, is regularly enriched: Years of Pilgrimage and Concert Studies by Liszt (Lyrinx), 24 preludes and fugues by Shostakovich (Brilliant Classics), concertos for piano and orchestra by Beethoven, Liszt, Shostakovich , Prokofiev, Schnittke, Saint-Saëns, Bartok, Liszt, Schubert/Liszt, Brahms for the Great Lithuanian live recordings series (Doron), Concerto No. 4 by Beethoven chamber version, works for solo piano by Louis Vierne (2015) then with string quartet and voice (2016, Brilliant Classics). Since 2017, she has recorded Julius Reubke's Sonatas for piano and organ with Olivier Vernet for the Ligia label, then, with the Mettis Quartet, a tribute to Shostakovich and Weinberg entitled “Dramatic Russian Legacy”. In 2020, Mūza would like to pay tribute to his compatriot Léopold Godowsky, both on stage and on record, on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of his birth near Vilnius. This disc, which also includes Preludes by Karol Szymanowsky, received numerous distinctions including: Télérama ffff, Diapason d’Or, Clas¬sica 5 *****. It is followed by this second volume for which the pianist invites the Russian violinist Dmitri Makhtin to join her in a duo. A Lisztian at heart, she has just won the 41st Grand Prix of the Liszt Society of Budapest for her disc From Waltz to the Abyss Schubert / Liszt (Lyrinx). LEARN MORE AT: www.muza.fr
