Lithuanian independence leader Vytautas Landsbergis on Russia and playing music

Lithuania declared its independence from the former Soviet Union 25 years ago. We’ll talk about that moment in history with Vytautas Landsbergis. He was Lithuania’s first head-of-state after independence. He’ll share what he remembers about that historic time and what he views as the current threat from Russia. Landsbergis is also a professor of music. He’ll perform for us and discuss how music and the arts factor into Lithuanian identity. PHOTO: Vytautas Landsbergis (Wikimedia Commons)
