Philharmonic highlights

The Athenaeum’s small hall on Sunday has two special guests performing in a unique Middle-Age music concert. Violinist Natalia Colotelo- Pancec and guitarist Maxim Belciug will remind music lovers of the French and Italian music in 16th century. The musicians will be performing their own interpretation of 1555’s Adrian Le Roy’s “Second Guitar Music Sheet” as well as a series of lyrical jewels from Antonio Caldara, Giambattista Pergolesi, Claudio Monteverdi, Giacomo Carissimi and Giulio Caccini. Speaking about the concert, guitarist Belciug explains this is a modern joint venture aimed at interpreting medieval music with today’s music instruments. “We are not going to use any of the instrument types they were using, I am going to perform on modern guitar, we are not aiming at re-enactment, but rather at showing music is a living organism and, no matter what ages it is coming from, it can still transmit emotion, which is triggered by substance and not by formula,” the musician says. Belciug is one of today’s best loved guitar artists, he was the first in Romania to issue a classic guitar CD. Natalia Colotelo-Pancec is first violin in George Enescu Philharmonic.
