The Imago Mundi ensemble will offer us, on Saturday, June 4, a concert of early Romanian music, from Dimitrie Cantemir to traditional music, including pieces which will be featured on the band’s future album, titled “Isvor”. The concert will be “illustrated” by video projections, mixed in real-time. Entrance is free. “Isvor” presents Imago Mundi’s take on early and traditional Romanian music, a repertoire rarely approached by classical musicians. What distinguishes the pieces included in the “Isvor” project is a dialogue between the traditional instruments used in the Romanian cultural space of Cantemir’s time (baglama, bouzouki, darbuka, bender) and the modern instruments now associated with classical music (flute, oboe, violin, guitar). A type of performance peculiar to electronic music, live video projections rely on the same concept that characterizes Imago Mundi’s music – a contemporary take on a background laden with history and traditions.
Venue: The Bucharest National University of Music’s Opera Studio, 7pm; Address: 33, Stirbei Voda
