Violinist Alexandru Tomescu at Radio Hall on February 14

Violinist Alexandru Tomescu comes back on the stage of the Radio Hall in the capital city as concerto soloist of the Radio Choruses and Orchestras, position held since 2002, and will play under their major conductor Tiberiu Soare on Friday at 7 pm. The event is broadcast live by Radio Romania Cultural and Radio Romania Musical stations and online on these radio stations’ websites.
A major creation of Armenian composer Aram Khachaturian, considered one of the major composers of the 20th century, “Violin Concerto in D minor” was concluded in 1949 and devoted to great Russian violinist David Oistrakh, one of the major instrumentalists of the world. The public will listen to the masterpiece played by Alexandru Tomescu, the Romanian violinist who has gained the right to play the Stradivarius Elder-Voicu violin since 2007.
The public will enjoy selections from the orchestra suites extracted from Sergei Prokofiev’s ballet based on William Shakespeare’s play “Romeo and Juliet” during the second part of the evening. The ballet has been staged many times, and among the pairs who honoured Prokofiev’s music were also Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev.
Tickets are available on www.bilete.ro, in the offices of the Romanian Postal Company, in the Inmedio shops labelled “Bilete.ro,” in the Germanos retail chain and at the box office of the Radio Hall.
