I’ve had this idea for a long time. I only didn’t have the courage to initiate it, because back there in Brasov there were no concert halls which would have been appropriate for such activities. However, since September we have a new Philarmonic Hall, which is surprisingly good andI’ve decided to take this step. The Orchestra has only string instruments, for the time being; I would like to maintain a work pace of one concert per month.
possible guest soloists We

will begin with Alexandru Tomescu.
are the next guests
of Camerata Kronstadt in
the coming months?
We wanted to start with a well-known Romanian player and my colleague and friend, Alexandru Tomescu seems to be the best choice. The following concerts will have as guests, Razvan Stoica in February, also a Romanian violinist less known in Romania, but in Europe he has a really great career, in March we will have Silvia Chies as a guest, a high-class cellist from Italy, then Maurizio Ballini, a well-known pianist, from Italy, as well. In April, Kamerata will perform a concert at the Black Church.
are your thoughts before the debut concert of the orchestra?
I am as highly enthusiastic as my colleagues in the orchestra. We have a much greater success than we have expected. We could have played the same concert two consecutive evenings based on the request we had, so we get off on the right foot. We are very satisfied and happy. We try to make the concert with a great artistic quality.
