Anatolijus Šenderovas' music has distinctly recognizable sound and does not lack magic for its specific modal colour, improvisational character, development of the piece from a single thematic motto, emotionality, strong dramatic expression and energy. His music includes elements of both archaic Oriental music and more abstract atonal style. The composer does not adhere to a single method of composition, instead he chooses particular most appropriate composing techniques for every new piece. Anatolijus Šenderovas gives a lot of attention to the sacred themes, using the stories and texts from the Old and New Testament in Hebrew and Latin. His music perfectly fits in the European new music context and is often performed by the Lithuanian musicians as well as performers from the other continents.
