Wie ben ik?

Interestingly enough the first real concert, at least that is how I felt about it when I was about 6 or 7 years old, I gave was in the amazing Abdij of Egmond-Binnen, The Netherlands where my father Vytautas Kaunas had an exhibition by that time. It was a huge success and after 11 years I came back to study violin here. During the time being in Lithuania was lucky to find one of the best teachers there, who nurtured the love for music and violin, as wel as being a great example of human, teacher and a man Kestutis Ivaskevicius.

Participated in a certain amount of competitions, festivals, masterclasses and for the last years was led by a wonderful professor Lei Wang, but the most recent and the most important as I perceive it, was being accepted to the NMF community.

It did not only provided me an oustanding instrument, but also granted me forceful support and a huge prop to look ahead and chase the career of musician. It is indescribable feeling to play a high quality instrument and am overjoyed to represent the foundation. Hope that NMF can grow to be able to help even more musicians in the future.

Nationaal Muziekinstrumenten Fonds generously loaned me a beautiful Giulio Degani's violin made in Venetia (Italy) on February 2017
