Bach's Double Violin Concerto - 'Played in Family' at The Radio Hall
The RADIO CHAMBER ORCHESTRA offers you the great opportunity of listening to this famous concert at the Radio Hall on Wednesday, 12th February, at 19:00,. The protagonists of the evening are two violinists, mother and daughter: CRISTINA ANGHELESCU- soloist of the Radio Orchestras and Choirs and her daughter, IOANA CRISTINA GOICEA. The young violinist is studying in Leipzig and on 20th September, when she was only 20 years old, was awarded 1st Prize at the 2013 edition of the prestigious Johannes Brahms International Violin Competition, in Pörtschach, Austria. After participating on February, 2013, at the competition organized by the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben Foundation in Hamburg, the violinist earned the right to play the Giambattista Guadagnini violin, made in Parma in 1761. The young violinist’s awards track record is impressive: over 28 national and international awards, including 1st Prize at the Andrea Postacchini International Violin Competition (2012, Italy), 1st Prize and Special Prize Reinhold Würth at the Kloster Schöntal International Competition for Violin (2011, Germany), 1st Prize and Special Prize Bach at the same competition in 2009 and many more. Ioana Cristina Goicea has already performed as soloists with numerous Romanian orchestras, such as the George Enescu Philharmonic Orchestra in Bucharest, the National Radio Orchestra and the Radio Chamber Orchestra of Romania, the Romanian Youth Orchestra, the philharmonic ensembles in Romania, but also from abroad - The Virtuosi Italiani Chamber Orchestra in Verona, Orchester der Musikalischen Komödie in Leipzig, etc.
An active presence on all of the Romanian Philharmonics stages as far back as her college years, Cristina Anghelescu has been invited to perform with important orchestras in Dresden, Paris, Prague, Bratislava, Caracas, Moscow, Budapest, London, Helsinki and Madrid. The violinist had many tours and recitals in all the European countries, in Taiwan, Thailand, Korea, North and South America.
The concert will be held under the baton of the French conductor OLIVIER ROBE, trained at the National Superior Conservatory of Paris and at Essen, in Germany. He conducted ensembles such as the chamber orchestras in Berlin, Amsterdam, symphonic orchestras in Vaasa, Nurnberg, Dubrovnik, Moscow, etc. His education knits an interesting path between his instrumentalist side - he plays the cello and the piano - and his conductor side. Since 2000, Olivier Robe has been a cellist at the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in Flanders.
The evening’s programme proposes, alongside Bach, three more great composers: Ravel’s Le tombeau de Couperin, Mozart’s Symphony No. 31 in D major (also known as The Paris Symphony) and Grieg’s The Holberg Suite. The last musical piece was composed by the Norwegian artist on the bicentenary anniversary of the birthday of Ludwig Holberg, a Danish dramatist, historian, philosopher and illuminist of Norwegian descent and it illustrates dance styles characteristic to the 18th century.
