The concert program is described as an easy juggling act between world-renowned music with Lithuanian roots and echoes of folk music in the context of classical music.

In 1924, G. Gershwin's work "Rhapsody in Blue", which was first performed and made famous by the cult Paul Whiteman with his musicians, is heard on different continents today. This piece is primarily intended for piano and orchestra. Martyns Levickis poured his visions into it, creating an accordion arrangement - no accordion player has ever performed Rhapsody in Blue. Martynas will be the first to play it with his chamber ensemble Mikroorkéstra.

W. Kilar's "Orawa" orchestra will sound like a connection between two different sound worlds. This piece is based on the motifs of the musical tradition of Podhale (the mountain region of southern Poland), thus beautifully combining the Lithuanian folk songs arranged by Martynas Levickis that will be played later in the concert.
