ARTS & LEISURE CONCERTS

Bows cross again

Already a tradition on Romania’s cultural agenda, the International Tour “Duel of Violins”, a project by Radio Romania organized by the Media Cultural Centre, will be organized during September 22 – October 4 and include eleven cities in Romania and the Republic of Moldova. Protagonists are violinists Liviu Prunaru and Gabriel Croitoru, while the referee of the music competition is pianist Horia Mihail.
After four successful editions, the idea of a duel turned into an amiable competition for the delight of the audience, as the reputed names of the instrument players were granted less attention and a highest level of appreciation targeted the quality of interpretation, the sensitivity and devotion of the artists, but also the choice of repertoire that, this year, is filled with romanticism, virtuosity and colour.
If, during the first rounds, the two violinists have chosen works of a special sensitivity, due to carry listeners in a wonderful music journey filled with lyricism, but also meant to emphasise their outstanding value as performers, in the third part, the two artists will shake hands, as great virtuosos do, and perform together a few works with American and Latino influences, destined to set on fire the souls of music enthusiasts everywhere. Therefore, the evening will end in tango rhythms, and listeners who wish to keep these performances in their private collections may buy on the website www.edituracasaradio.ro, the new CD “Tango” by Liviu Prunaru and Gabriel Croitoru.
Certainly, the audience will appreciate, besides the virtuosity of the artists and the sound of both violins – Stradivarius Pachoud played by Liviu Prunaru, and Guarneri del Gesu, played by Gabriel Croitoru (offered of the George Enescu National Museum, which includes that violin in its patrimony), violins carrying with them, on their turn, outstanding storirs that might be descovered on the website www.duelulviorilor.ro”, the organizers announced.
