The first CD “Songs” by Mihail Jora to be launched today

Monday, September 28, 2009, at 18.00 h., in “Euterpe” concert hall from Bucharest (15, Doamnei St.), “Romania de Maine Foundation” in collaboration with the Union of Interpreters, Choreographers and Music Critics from Romania (UICCMR) invites the public, as part of “Amfiteatrul Muzelor,” Ilinca Dumitrescu and her guests,” at the recital called “A classic nowadays: the composer Mihail Jora.” The soprano Mirela Zafiri and the pianist Ana Maria Ciornei will present the cycles 4 Songs on verses by Tudor Arghezi, op. 16 (Ghicitoare, Buna-Vestire, Vaca lui Dumnezeu, Cantec din fluier), 5 Songs on verses by Mariana Dumitrescu, op. 31 (Chiot, Incantatie, Lumina, Noapte buna, Buna dimineata), 5 Songs on verses by Mariana Dumitrescu, op. 40 (Urmele, Amurg, Cantec de zori, Cuvintele, Acuarela) by Mihail Jora (1891-1971). The CD Mihail Jora – Songs, recently issued by DMG Records from Bucharest, will be launched on the same occasion. Participants: Georgeta Stoleriu, Nicolae Coman, Grigore Constantinescu, Vasile Donose, Costin Tuchila.

The CD is a first and a real event in the Romanian musical life: performed by by Mirela Zafiri, accompanied by Ana Maria Ciornei, the cycles Songs on verses by Tudor Arghezi (op. 16) and Mariana Dumitrescu (op. 31 and op. 40) appear now for the first time on a CD.

It is worth noting also the exceptional quality of the interpretation of the soprano Mirela Zafiri: special musicality, extreme expressiveness of the intonation, refined expression of the rich nuances of the scores, and, which is a quite essential aspect, irreproachable diction, alongside the pianistic refinement of Ana Maria Ciornei. Another CD which appeared at DMG Records is Sept chansons de Clement Marot, op. 5, by Georges Enesco, in the same interpretation.
