My musical biography
“Pianist Agnė Pasaravičienė is one of the hardest working dedicated musicians I've known. My music is not easy to interpret, and especially not for the pianist. Agnė took on the challenge and not only did she play it perfectly, but she also added her own aesthetics to the music.” Kenneth Dahl Knudsen
Agnė Pasaravičienė is a younger-generation Lithuanian composer & pianist who combines the elements of modern jazz and contemporary classical music in her compositions and performing style. Agnė creates music for different instrument setups like solo piano, piano & double bass chamber duo, and a modern jazz quartet.
