Year-round concert series: Academia Sighișoara visits Timișoara and Oradea, Feb 25, 2015
We are launching the 2015 year-round concert series in March, in the framework of Academia Sighisoara. The events are taking place in different Romanian cities promoting high quality classical music performed by talented local musicians, as well as showcasing the works of contemporary and modern Romanian and Swiss composers.
The two series-launching concerts held in Timisoara (March 3) and Oradea (March 4) are titled Dialogues due to the structure of its program. The program proposes a dialogue between the masterpieces wrote by well known music creators of the 20th century and a handful of the most well known composers of Cluj, Romania. The three musicians engaged in this musical dialogue are each well defined artistic personalities, representing the school of Cluj. Melinda Béres (violin), Tiberius Simu (tenor) and Silvia Sbârciu (piano) will perform works by Olivier Messien, Romanian composers Cornel Țăranu, Dan Voiculescu, Adrian Pop and Swiss composer Arthur Honegger.
