Violinist Sarah Chang returns to Romania for two concerts that might be held on April 15 at the National Romanian Opera House in Cluj-Napoca and on April 16 at the Palace Hall in Bucharest.
The artist will perform in April for the fifth time in our country, but she will perform for the first time works by Max Bruch, a composer that influenced her existence. Her recordings of Bruch were voted by Gramophone Magazine as among the top 250 of all times.
The conductor of the concerts will be Jose Luis Gomez. Sarah Chang will be accompanied by the Symphonic Orchestra of Bucharest. She is playing a Guarneri del Gesu violin manufactured in 1717.
The tickets to Sarah Chang concerts in Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca may be found at the box offices of the respective locations and online, on vandbilete.ro, bilete.ro, eventim.ro.
Sarah Chang was a guest of the Enescu Festival in 2001, 2003 and 2015.
The artist appears in front of the Romanian audience with a repertoire she has studied at the age of 5 for the auditions to the prestigious Juilliard School in New York. At the age of 8, she made her debut at the New York Philharmonic without rehearsals and a year later she became the world’s youngest violinist to record an album.
Yehudi Menuhin had declared that Sarah Chang was the “ideal violinist, the most wonderful and perfect artist he ever listened to”, the press release mentioned.
