I have great pleasure in recommending the young Lithuanian virtuoso Vilhelmas Cepinskis and his wonderfull ensemble Camerata Klaipeda.Together they perform music of the greatest variety and originality with real commitment and talent.V.Cepinskis is himself a violinist of particular sensitivity and his arrangement and rendering of Piazzolla’s“Four Seasons in Buenos Aires is simply irresistible.

It was a great inspiration. Never before have I heard a better Piazzolla recording-you are promoting an orchestra that oviously reserves worldwide attention.I met Piazzolla only once [….] He would be really proud of what Camerata Klaipeda has created from his music

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter in support of the candidacy of Mr. Vilhelmas Cepinskis for the position of violinist with your renowned Trio.
In addition to being a world class virtuoso, Mr. Cepinskis possesses a sincere and profound approach to music, making him a complete musician. His piano playing, his orchestral transcriptions, as well as his own compositions, are truly impressive.
As a friend and colleague, I have also witnessed his flawless sight-reading and his ability to learn any piece in a matter of a few days or hours.
His warm sound and subtle expressiveness have always been spellbinding.
Finally, I would like to mention his remarkable human qualities: truthfullness, loyalty, and respect which are an integral part of his personality.
Since his early childhood, Mr. Cepinskis was, and still is, one of the greatest names in Baltic Heritage.

I was fortunate to observe the musical path of Vilhelmas Cepinskis, a true child prodigy, from the age of ten. The very first time that I heard him play, I was convinced that I was listening to one of the phenomenal players of our time and, having heard him countless times, this feeling has not left me to this day, His „old school“ style reminds one of Jascha Heifetz also matching it with incredible lightness and virtuosity, nevertheless, remaining deeply individual. His certain musical „conservatism,“ paradoxically, has true novelty and freshness today.
When I played chamber music with him, as well as sonatas, trios and double concertos, I discovered another amazing quality of this great musician. Whatever setting he is in, whether it be his chamber orchestra, trio or duo, he is able to transmit his virtuosity to his partners. Playing with Vilhelmas is easy, despite the highest artistic standards that he expects from his partners, as well as from himself. When playing together, you feel inevitably and pleasantly compelled to be at your best.
Vilhelmas Cepinskis as a truly fantastic violinist, musician, chamber orchestra conductor, and composer of many arrangements and compositions.
