Tchaikovsky Gala
February 28, 2013

The works of the most romantic composer of all time, Tchaikovsky, will be performed by the Romania’s National Youth Orchestra in a Trinket musical gift that will take place on March 3 at Radio Hall in Bucharest.

Romanian Youth Orchestra was formed in the summer of 2008, in the city of Sinaia, following an initiative from cellist Marin Cazacu with the help of “The Friends of Music – Serafim Antropov”.

Its members, aged 19 to 26, are selected from the top performers across the nation. The technical and artistic training is coordinated by maestro Cristian Mandeal.

The evening will begin with the fantasy-overture “Romeo and Juliet” followed by Lenski’s opera, “Eugene Onegin” in a transcription novel for cello and Overture “1812” composed in memory of Napoleon’s battles during his invasion of Russia. The program will include “Pezzo Capriccioso for Cello and Orchestra” and “Italian Caprice”, the second score being inspired by a trip to Rome, undertaken by Tchaikovsky.

The concert will bring to the public two acclaimed artists, father and son, Marin and Stefan Cazacu. The first is one of the largest Romanian musicians, performing throughout his career with prestigious conductors and soloists from around the world, and the second is the recipient of numerous national and international awards, the Grand Prix winner of “Eurovision – Youngs Musicians “- Romania, now a student at the University of Music Bucharest, Razvan Suma class.

The concert will begin at 19:00 and tickets can be bought from network at RON 60.
