The Tuesday Evening Season at the Romanian Athenaeum
Like Water is the title of the album launched by the contrabassist Pedro Negrescu and Luiza Zan and, implicitly, of the recital held by the two - a warm, passionate performance, ranging from jazz plays to traditional songs, focusing on the main existential leitmotifs: time, earth, roots, water and love.
"This programme was the reinterpretation of the plays on the album we launched in October this year. We've tried to keep the plays structure and stick as close as possible to the album version, although there they have been totally improvised. It was a pretty difficult mission for Pedro to keep the contrabass arrangement almost identical to that on the album." (Luiza Zan)
The twelve plays interpreted by Luiza Zan and the contrabassist Pedro Negrescu have taken a free form and have been masterly offered to the jazz lovers who have filled up the Little Hall of the Romanian Athenaeum.
