George Enescu Square becomes ‘musical garden’

Bucharest Music Film Festival (BMFF) and ArCuB Live Open Air-Jazz, Blues & More are two events that include quality music, finest artists and an exquisite atmosphere organised by ArCuB in the George Enescu Square in Bucharest, between June 21 and July 7. Good music, acclaimed artists, elegant setting and a rich repertoire for all ages and tastes are coming together in two of the most important events organised by ArCuB.
During there weeks, the charm of classical music and the elite of jazz will conquer the audience in the George Enescu Square. Specially set to welcome music lovers and art appreciating public, from June 21 to June 31, the generous space near the Romanian Athenaeum is turning into an unusual ‘musical garden’.
At the 8th edition of BMFF, ArCuB proposes to all participants ten days of joy and relaxation in a marathon of classical music: creations of a few prime composers – Antonin Dvo?ák, P.I Tchaikovsky, S. Rachmaninov, W. A. Mozart and George Enescu – performed by locally and internationally acclaimed artists: Tiberiu Soare, Alexander Balanescu, Marco di Sapia, Judith Halasz, Benoit Fromanger, Jin Wang, Matthew Polenzani, Wendy Bryn Harmer, Kate Lindsey etc. There will also be lyrical recitals and cinema screenings: documentaries, opera and choreography performances.
In keeping the beautiful tradition of the festival, the public is invited to the ‘Dancing Hour’ with waltzes, polkas and menuets every night. Two big surprises have been prepared for the last night: a concert by the Spirit of Vienna Orchestra – special guests on the festival – and the draw of prizes for the public.
In the July 3 – 7 period, jazz lovers are invited to the concerts of a few outstanding bands from Romania, Germany, UK, the Netherlands and USA. After the success marked with the first edition last year, this year ArCuB Live Open Air-Jazz, Blues & More is bringing world class artists such as James Carter and Tomasz Sta?ko, who will offer premier live recitals in Bucharest.
