One of the successful projects of Radio Romania, namely the tournament called “Enescu’s Violin”, exceeded the borders of the country and even of Europe, reaching to delight the Chinese audience, according to Radio Romania Cultural.

The tournament’s protagonists, namely the violinist Gabriel Croitoru and the pianist Horia Mihail, were intensively applauded with two occasions. The first one was on April 26, 2016, at the Music Central Conservatory in Beijing, one of the most important high artistic education institutions in China and Asia. The two artists played song by Grieg, Brahms, Cesar Franck and Porumbescu.

The recital was organized by Romanian Cultural Institute in Beijing, in association with Radio Romania and the Music Central Conservatory in Beijing.

On April 27, the two musicians held the second concert in the Chinese Capital, at the Chinese Radio Hall.
