Alexandru Tomescu, one of the most well known Romanian violinists, a soloist of the Romanian Radio Orchestras and Choirs, who has earned the privilege of playing the Stradivarius Elder Voicu violin, will perform on Tuesday, May 26th at 7.00 PM at the Romanian Radio Hall together with Russian pianist Eduard Kunz the Bucharest recital within their international tour Stradivarius – Enescu Experience!
The Stradivarius Tour 2015 – named Enescu Experience this year in the intent to commemorate 60 years since the great Romanian musician passed away – was initiated 6 years ago by Alexandru Tomescu. At this edition the programme will showcase, for the first time played in Romania in a single tour, Enescu’s complete works for violin and piano.
The tour has made its debut on May 3rd in Sinaia, a place very dear to Enescu, and takes place between May 3rd and June 15th in several Romanian cities, in the Republic of Moldova and in France, where the two musicians will give concerts and a series of conferences for young audiences in high schools and universities. This edition of the tour is also dedicated to a special social and cultural purpose – the restoration of the Enescu House in Mihăileni (Botoşani) in order to turn it into a cultural and musical international centre.
Alexandru Tomescu has won, in 2013, for the second time, after a national competition organized by the Romanian Ministry of Culture, the right to play for the forthcoming 5 years the Stradivarius Elder Voicu violin. The instrument belonged for four decades to violinist Ion Voicu and is considered to be among the most beautiful and best preserved Stradivarius violins in the world.
Eduard Kunz, the pianist who has been included by the prestigious BBC Music Magazine in the top 10 pianists for the future, will accompany for the first time consecutively violinist Alexandru Tomescu in the Stradivarius Tour. Tickets are available online on www.bilete.ro, or you may purchase tickets at all offices of the Romanian Post Company, in the Inmedio Shops bearing Bilete.ro logo, in Germanos Shops and at the Romanian Radio Hall Box Office.
