Musical soirees at the Romanian Athenaeum

A series of 21 classical music concerts will be held, during the next months, at the Romanian Athenaeum, under the heading “Romanian Soirees in Bucharest”, and aficionados of the genre may listen today to the members of the Ad Libitum String Quartet, organizers inform, quoted by Mediafax. Major Romanian and foreign artists, prestigious conductors, chamber and symphonic orchestras will concert, thus, on the stage of the Athenaeum throughout the summer and autumn up to the winter season. The repertoire comprises some of the most appreciated classical music pieces, and addresses both the connoisseurs and those less familiarised with the genre.

The members of the Ad Libitum String Quartet, featured in today’s programme, will be followed by the violinists Liviu Prunaru, Gabriel Croitoru, Alexandru Tomescu, Silvia Marcovici, Bogdan Zvoristeanu, the pianists Valentin Gheorghiu, Dana Protopopescu, Gunilla Sussmann, Michael Roll, Martino Tirimo, Aimo Pagin, the “George Enescu” Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir, the Bucharest Virtuosi Orchestra, the Romanian Youth Orchestra, the maestros Cristian Mandeal and Horia Andreescu, as well as a considerable number of exceptional young artists, who will play alongside these resonant names in the music scene. The first concert in the series was held on July 14, featuring Mihaela Martin and Thomas Hoppe.

The organizer of the project is the Lanto Arte Cultural Association. Co-organizers of the event are TVR Cultural and the “George Enescu” Philharmonic in Bucharest.

Tickets can be purchased from the Romanian Athenaeum, at the 1 Franklin Street entrance.
