Tuesday Evening Season - 28th January 2014
"This is the third time that I have played on the stage of the Small Hall of the Romanian Athenaeum, and every time it has been extraordinary. I feel at home here: the public comes with pleasure and I always perform with pleasure, being 'at home'. I wanted to have a varied repertoire; therefore I avoided performing pieces of the same musical style consecutively. I started and finished with the Romantic style, I approached the Baroque style, the Classical one and obviously I performed works by Enescu. I do not have a favourite composer, but being a Romanian composer so dear to me, I really wanted to perform two works by Enescu this evening".
In a well-prepared programme reflecting her evolutive process both at the artistic and the inner level, Daria Tudor captured the public's attention right from the first chords, with her talent, sustained by a very good piano technique, creative intuition and powerful expression, this way proving her artistic maturity. After a difficult programme, rewarded with enthusiastic applauses, Daria Tudor managed to conclude her recital with one more piece from one of Frederic Chopin's creations.
