For eight days, the parking in the vicinity of the Romanian Athenaeum will be turned into a green and flowery oasis, in the heart of the city, complete with fine gardens, souvenir stands and a playground for children, where the little ones can explore to their heart’s content the “Pirate Ship”.

The dance arena will host demonstrations by professional dancers, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening, starting 6pm. Every night, starting 9pm, the public will be able to watch screenings of important concerts and opera shows from the world’s greatest opera houses. Also featured on the programme are live concerts and recitals, offered by the pianist Horia Maxim, the “Oltenia” Philharmonic in Craiova, the Artmusik Quartet, Trio Veritas, the pianist Laura Pauna, the Acapella vocal ensemble, the pianists Toma Popovici and Horia Mihail, Camerata Regala and the Sinfonia Bucuresti Orchestra.

The event series will be opened by the National Radio Orchestra, under the baton of Tiberiu Soare, with a programme including works by composers Johann and Joseph Strauss, Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Giacomo Puccini, Georges Bizet, Gioachino Rossini. The venue is open to the public between 11am and 11pm, every day of the festival, and access is free. The programme is available on the www.arcub.ro website and on the institution’s Facebook page.

The festival started out in 2006, as a partnership with the Vienna Mayor’s Office, under the heading MozartFest. After the tremendous success reported at the time, the organizers wished to prolong this collaboration, to bring to Bucharest the air of Viennese gardens and the finest music, and the festival was then renamed the Vienna Music Film Festival. The manifestation is, by now, tradition and, since 2009, the official organizer has been Bucharest City Hall, via ArCuB, which is why the event is now called the Bucharest Music Film Festival. ArCuB celebrates, this year, 15 years since its founding, during which it has created and produced a host of events meant to turn the city and its most important sites – parks, boulevards, squares – into a large open-air venue.
