Aurēlija Šimkus' international career began at the age of 16, when the German record company “Ars Produktion” released her solo album “Scherzo”. The “Piano News” magazine called it the album of the month, stating that “Aurelia Šimkus is an excellent pianist and a real discovery”, while the “Westfalische Rundschau” newspaper admired the soulfulness of her piano playing, filled with the most refined musicality and sensuality. For her second solo album “Bach. Ich ruf' zu dir” Aurēlija received the prestigious “Echo Klassik” award in 2016.
