A Lost Letter, Composed by Dan Dediu - an Absolute Premiere at the Bucharest National Opera
'I was caught in a traffic jam and I turned on the radio on the Radio Romania Music station. A Piazzolla tango was on air. In a split second, I realized that was Tipătescu! The rest came by itself: Trahanache - characterized by the Balkan melodic rhythms and inflexions; Cațavencu - versatile and slick, within a background ranging from a long circle dance and romanza rhythms to habanera and French can-can (...)', Dan Dediu declared for the NOB.
