Alexandru Tomescu plays Bach in 12 cathedrals

Violinist Alexandru Tomescu will perform “Bach to Basics in cathedrals of several cities across Romania part of the “Stradivarius” National Tour May 10 thru 29. And, since Alexandru Tomescu wants to remain faithful to the tradition he established over the past two years – of presenting syncretic shows – this year, the Integral of Sonatas and Partite will be accompanied by a light show specially designed for this event. Light will accompany the melodic line of the six works, also showcasing the generous space of the cathedrals hosting the performances. “Bach lies somewhere above the list of my favorite musicians. He wrote the violinists’ Bible – the Six Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin, the only composition I’ll take with me on a deserted island,” said Alexandru Tomescu. The tour includes Brasov (May 10), Targu Mures (11), Cluj-Napoca (13), Baia Mare (14), Oradea (16), Timisoara (18), Dumbraveni (20), Iasi (22), Bacau (23), Constanta (25), Pitesti (27) and Bucharest (29).

The Stradivarius National Tour is dedicated to the Hope Foundation and Homes for Children Romania, an organization that Alexandru Tomescu began supporting in 2012. This year, admission is free at recitals, although the attendees are invited to make donations to HHC Romania.
