Carols and Christmas songs with the ‘Preludiu’ Choir at the Romanian Athenaeum


The chamber choir ‘Preludiu,’ conducted by Voicu Enachescu, will perform an extraordinary concert of carols and Christmas songs at the Romanian Athenaeum today, as of 7.00 PM. The Christmas concerts of the Preludiu Choir of the National Art Centre ‘Tinerimea Romana’ have already become a tradition. The refined singing, the beauty of the repertoire, the charisma of conductor Voicu Enachescu, who often renounces his sober posture of the tradition choir leader in favour of a stance more relaxed and friendlier to the public – these are the ingredients of a successful concert that recreates the magic of Christmas, which nobody who enjoys authentic art of the highest quality should miss. In its 41 years of existence, the Preludiu choir became a landmark for the Romanian choral art, its renown being confirmed in Romania and abroad by many successful tours conducted by the same master Voicu Enachescu. Since it was created, the ‘Preludiu’ choir performed over 2,000 concerts on famous stages in the country and abroad, during more than 80 tours through 25 countries from almost the whole globe. It is also a laureate of several international festivals.
During its long existence, the renowned choir also made hundreds of radio and TV records, launched an album with Electrecord and three CDs. Its repertoire includes over 300 works of pre-classical, classical and romantic music, religious songs, carols, Romanian music, songs from the folklore of many peoples, contemporary and vocal-symphonic works. Year 2012 brought a new international recognition of the chamber choir Preludiu: the 1st Prize at the Orthodox Music Festival of Bialystok-Poland, the gold medal awarded to the choir and the Best Conductor award granted to master Voicu Enachescu at the International Choral Festival of Beijing-China.
In recognition of the outstanding artistic activity, conductor Voicu Enachescu received the title of Commander of the ‘Cultural Merit’ Order, for promoting culture.
