The Award for Excellence in Romanian Culture
1 March 2000, BUCHAREST

23 March 2001, BUCHAREST
24 March 1999, BUCHAREST


"The musical program proposed by the organizer - SonArt Artist Management – was chosen having in view four idealistic pylons – the thematic formula is used a lot nowadays all over the world. The Bach Year dominates the musical world, and that’s why the famous Toccata and Fugue in re minor opened the concert in sumptuous sonorities (with Nicolae Licaret at the organ).

The work or thematic from Ion Caianu (17th century) to the contemporaries was presented in dance rhythms - Marin Cazacu and Steluta Radu; Silvia Marcovici and Valentin Gheorghiu – the interest for a score forever young (“The Concert for Piano and Orchestra” by Valentin Gheorghiu and “Rhapsody no.2” by Enescu).



"Sonata no.1" by Enescu: the violin on the Athenaeum’s stage was associated with the piano in New York, thousands of miles away! The two actors of this spectacular game: Florin Ionescu-Galati – violin and Horia Mihail – piano.
Finally, the program ended with the last part of Beethoven’s “Symphony no.9” (the “George Enescu” Philharmonic, conductor Cristian Mandeal).

The voice quartet united, in a global view, representatives of four races: alongside with mezzo soprano Claudia Codreanu appeared Curtis Rayam - black tenor of high level international circulation, with impeccable style and technique, the bas-baritone Grant Youngblood, Indian born in the United States - splendid voice with noble colour and ample phrase, and finally, the young Japanese soloist Ema Yasuda."
(Elena Zottoviceanu - Romania Literara, April 2000)
