Juozas Gruodis House

  Salako 18      (+370) 37 73 11 84     26 Sep 2019
Juozas Gruozis (1884-1948) was a composer, conductor, writer and teacher of note who lived in this charming wooden house with his wife Stasė from 1932 until his death 16 years later. Inside is a permanent exhibition highlighting the most important parts of the artist’s life with plenty of thoughtful descriptions in English. Gruozis’ music blended a deep Romanticism with elements of Lithuanian folk music and is well worth checking out, not least his short String Quartet in D Minor, written in 1924 when the composer was living in Leipzig. The building also hosts the occasional concert and cultural event, although it’s worth noting that visits to the museum need to be booked in advance during the times listed below.
