Violinist Alexandru Tomescu launched his Stradivari Obsessions album last evening at Bucharest’s Kretulescu Library. The album includes Eugene Ysaye’s sonatas for solo violin, hotnews.ro informs. The Belgium composer dedicated each of the six sonatas to a great violinist, the third being written for and in George Enescu’s style. Just as he did in the case of previous albums, renowned German sound engineer Jacob Handel contributed to the recording of this album. Alexandru Tomescu will give two performances at the Festival of Radio Orchestras that will take place in Bucharest on September 23-29. Thus, on September 24 he will interpret Tchaikovsky’s Concert for violin and orchestra in Re Major, Op.35, alongside the RAI Torino Orchestra at the Palace’s Great Hall. On September 25 he will interpret works written by Borodin, Stravinski and Schubert, alongside the Ad Libitum quarter at the Romanian Radiobroadcasting Company’s Mihail Jora Hall.
