The Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1960 by Salius Sondeckis, who served as its Chief Conductor and Artistic Director until 2004. It is the first Lithuanian orchestra that managed to obtain permission to give a concert outside the USSR, in East Germany, in 1960.  Its first appearance in the West was at the Echternach Festival in Luxembourg in 1976. To date, it has given numerous performances in both Americas, Cuba, Egypt, the Republic of South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, Australia and Japan (six times!) and throughout Europe, at the world’s greatest concert halls. It has had an extraordinary collaboration with legendary violinist and conductor Yehudi Menuhin, in around 60 concert performances, as well as with numerous other prominent soloists, conductors and choirs. It has made more than a hundred recordings, especially focusing on Bach’s and Mozart’s music. They had an interesting collaboration with legendary British actor Sir Peter Ustinov as narrator, which resulted in a unique recording of L. van Beethoven's ballet music The Creatures of Prometheus for RCA Red Seal Label, which became a real bestseller for BMG Media Company. The orchestra is renowned for premiering works of contemporary authors, Arvo Pärt and Alfred Schnittke among others, of which many were dedicated to it.

Famous violinist Sergei Krylov has been serving as the Orchestra's Artistic Director since 2008. His extensive artistic activities, contacts in the music world, as well as refined playing and professional experience, have brought the Orchestra's performances to an even higher level. Critics spare no praise for the dynamic musical partnership of the orchestra and its Director, who states clearly: “I require from the orchestra exactly what I try to do myself:  achieve the best instrumental and technical quality of performance and constantly search for new approaches to interpretation. I trust that it is attainable and that the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra has been rightfully listed among Europe's top ten chamber orchestras.”
