David Geringas (b1946)

One of four musically-talented brothers, David Geringas began learning the cello at the National M.K. Čiurlionis School of Art in Vilnius, where children receive a general education whilst specialising in music, ballet or art. At the end of his schooling he made his début with the Lithuanian National Philharmonic Orchestra and entered the Moscow Conservatory under Rostropovich. His lessons were extremely demanding, Rostropovich expecting students to learn music rapidly and in the context of symphonic and operatic works. Geringas flourished under this regime and continued the lessons for five years after graduating from the conservatory.

Known also as a teacher and conductor, Geringas is established as a significant figure in the sphere of new music and has given premières of several important compositions. His 2007 recording of Schnittke’s bleak Sonata No. 1 has, in the middle movement in particular, a dark, almost brutal quality that cannot fail to affect the listener. He and his pianist wife Tatjana both evidence understanding of Schnittke’s intense and at times terrifying musical soundscape.
