Extraordinary ‘Discover Romania’ international tour



The first performance is scheduled to take place on 11 August at Accademia di Romania in Rome.
An amazing cultural and touristic event will take place during August11-18, 2013, a press release cited by HotNews reports. According to the same source, Icon Arts Trio, comprising of valuable musicians who have won multiple national and international competitions and have grown into world-class musical artists is emarking on a musical journey: an extraordinary tour entitled ”Descopera Romania”. The organisers invite you to discover the true face of Romania, a country full of talented, creative and valuable people and touristic riches, a country where tolerance and interracial cooperation coexist, and finally, a country with an immense touristic potential. It is not a coincidence that the first recital is to take place on August 11 at Accademia di Romania in Rome, the European capital that has the least favourable perception of our country.
The Icon Arts Trio will be followed by the top quality music of George Enescu, Ern? Dohnányi and Franz Schubert, whose songs will fill some of the most spectacular Romanian tourist spaces: the great viticulture planes on the bank of the Danube (Ostrov Vineyards) in the wine-tasting hall (Friday, August 16, 9 p.m.), the music hall of Peles Castle (August 17, 5 p.m.) and Sala Scoartelor of Mogosoaia Palace (August 18, 5 p.m.).
Icon Arts Trio consists of cello player Simon Csongor, an eminent representative of the musical school in Targu Mures, having won over 10 national and international prizes. He has given recitals all over the country and performed in concerts as a soloist with various orchestras. Sion Csongor is currently a student at Gheorghe Dima Academy in Cluj, and despite being only 20 years of age, is also a member of the Transylvania Philharmonic.
Fellow cellist Csilla Kecskes Aved also comes from Targu Mures and is studying at the Arts University in Zurich (Switzerland) at present. She excelled in the SoNoRo project, having played as a soloist at the Targu Mures Philharmonic and the Budapest Chamber Orchestra.
Violist Mihai Cocea hails from Bucharest. After graduating from the National Music University in Bucharest, he continued his education at the Arts University in Zurich and the Royal Academy in London. He has won numerous prizes at Romanian and English competitions, and in January 2013, he was a finalist in the international Yuri Bashmet competition held in Moscow.
