Summary / Abstract:

ENLithuanian postwar emigre composer, musicologist, and piano player Vladas Jakubėnas (1904-1976) graduated from the Riga Conservatoire and the Berlin Higher Music School, and taught in the Kaunas Conservatoire before moving to Western Europe towards the end of WWII. His post-war years were spent in Chicago. Jakubėnas did not compose many musical works; however, his musicological writings are numerous: he wrote more that 1500 articles and essays for books, encyclopedias, and the press. He placed Lithuanian music in a European context and urged it to become an integral part of European music. His texts are one of the most essential sources of Lithuanian musical history.
