Banchetto Musicale Ensemble

Banchetto Musicale Ensemble

Early Music and Dance Group

The ensemble of the early music and dance was founded in 1985. Jūratė Mikiškaitė- Vičienė is the art director and director of musicians of the ensemble and Virginija Jašinskienė is the director of dancers.
It was the first ensemble of early music and dance in Lithuania and it's priorities are the heritage of Renaissaince musical culture of the Great Duchy of Lithuania and Western Europe. The ensemble participated in numerous festivals and musical projects, went on tours to Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Norway, Russia, Hungary and other countries. Joint programmes were produced with an Estonian ensemble of early music „Hortus Musicus" , a folk music group „Sedula", a choir for chamber music „Brevis" and ensemble of early music "Giesmių Tarnai" („Servants of Chants"). Music of the Renaissaince period - the end of the XVth up to the beginning of the XVIIth centuries, and dances from Italy, England and France prevail in the repertoire of the ensemble. Careful studies of gestures, manners and fashion help to create the authentic atmosphere of bygone centuries.

The activity of the ensemble should be reckoned from the date of the first premiere and it was on the 28th of February 1986, when a programme "Echoes of Bygone Centuries" was presented in Trakai Palace of Culture with singers G. Skerytė and A. Janutas participating.

Lithuanian Television created seven more noticeable works based on BANCHETTO MUSICALE programmes: "Renaissaince Music Concert" filmed in various places of the Old Town of Vilnius and in the Medininkai Castle, a studio-recorded concert "A Musical Ball", a musical film "A Day in Castle", shot in the Trakai Castle and its surroundings, and two parts for series „Echoes of Palace Majesty" and „Visions and Reality" each. Those were dedicated to the programme „The Ball of the 15th century" and to commemorate the 400 years jubilee of Bona Sforza.

Vilnius is a great place for pleasant strolls. It is green, full of cultural diversity and cozily compact. So compact, that in just a few dozen steps from the gallery, you find yourself in a park, followed by a baroque church, and off to the castle after a cup at the local cafe. Thus, in a short time you get to not just see, but also hear, touch, taste and tune into the soul of the city.
