Radio Hall gala concert features young musicians

Sunday’s performance with Romanian classical pieces and several surprises will be employing the talents of soprano Alexandra Coman, violinist Alexandru Tomescu and pianist Horia Mihail. The occasion: 152 years since the Unification of Romanian principalities on January 24 1859. Also featuring in the event are the National Orchestra and Choir, under the baton of Horia Andreescu. The comprehensive programme will include works from Romanian greats, from Ciprian Porumbescu and George Enescu, to Tiberiu Brediceanu, spiced up with several jewels from the creation of Beethoven or Tchaikovsky. Fresh from some of the world’s greatest stages, such as Berlin Staatsoper and the Cairo Opera House, Alexandra Coman will be performing “Three Romanian Songs for Soprano and Piano” by Tiberiu Brediceanu and J. Obradors’ lied “El Vito”, accompanied on the piano by Livia Teodorescu. Coman, 33, is currently one of the best known young Romanian artists who has successfully blended a local career with one abroad. She studied with Luciano Pavarotti and has shared the stage with Jose Carreras in his Romanian concerts in 2008. The soprano is currently recording a duet album with Placido Domingo. Violinist Alexandru Tomescu has debuted on stage at the age of 9, since then he has been featured in over 200 concerts and recitals in 26 countries around the globe. In September 2007, he has earned the right to perform for five years on the famous Stradivarius Elder violin, which belonged to legendary musician Ion Voicu and is considered national treasure. Also debuting in his childhood, pianist Horia Mihail is currently one of the top local performers, with a rich concert portfolio. He is a recipient of the prestigious Nate Neal Kinley Memorial Fellowship and in 1999 was awarded the Esther B. & Albert S. Kahn Career Entry Award.
