How did I come to make a CD just with songs about mothers and daughters? My daughter was away for three weeks during the summer holidays and I wanted to use the creatively to record a CD. I looked at my favourite songs and discovered that three of them had this thematic connection. The obvious thing to do was to take this as a theme, so I sat down with both of my pianists and we looked for other such songs. We found over thirty of them, from which we chose the most beautiful songs and those we thought the most fitting. When wehad decided on the programme for the CD I was invited by Deutschlandradio Kultur to make a co-production with them, and only four weeks later we were in the studio! It was to be the most poetic summer of my life. I devoured books on the subject, watched films and talked to mothers and daughters about this most enthralling of all relationships. It was a source of infinite joy for me to slip into the roles of all these mothers and daughters and I wish you just as much joy while listening! I wish to thank all my teachers, pupils and colleagues, who have constantly inspired me, as well as all those who have supported me in making this project possible and, of course, I thank my mother and my daughter!

The CD Music for Strings of Anatolijus Šenderovas, one of the most prominent Lithuanian composers, the laureate of the Lithuanian National Prize for Culture and Art, embraces fifteen years (2000-2015) of his chamber oeuvre and reveals the most typical features of his music, i.e. profound emotionalism, temperate modernism and intense dramaturgy.
The recording offers the possibility to hear one of the most significant pieces of Lithuanian music of the recent years – the String Quartet No.3 by Šenderovas – and reflects the creative friendship of the composer with the noted ensembles established firmly in the Lithuanian music elite – the piano trio FortVio and string quartet Art Vio.
The CD also includes the versions of the two pieces dedicated to world-famous Lithuanian German cellist David Geringas to mark the extraordinary friendship and long-standing cooperation of these two artists.
