‘Do you like Beethoven?’ A new musical journey, with Răzvan Suma and Daniel Goiți
Two exceptional musicians, Răzvan Suma și Daniel Goiți and two magical instruments, a cello and a piano are embarking at the start of a new musical journey that cannot be missed: national tour Do you like Beethoven? which will take place between 11 and 30 october 2017 in 8 cities across Romania.
Already at its 6th edition, the Do you like...? tour has been initiated in 2012 by the cello player Răzvan Suma, and, ever since, the public has been fascinated by the story of a musical adventure which grew from one stage to the next: from Bach to Brahms, from tango to Schumann, this year, the tour launches a new challenge: Do you like Beethoven?
In a musical duet which will be spectacular, the two musicians, stars of the tour Răzvan Suma și Daniel Goiți will perform three sonata for piano and cello written by the famous german composer: Sonata no. 3 in A major, opus 69 the ultimate landmark of the genre, and also Sonata no.1 in C major, opus 102 and Sonata no. 2 in D major, opus 102.
"The Do you like…? tour shows its constancy, at the sixth title, says Răzvan Suma. We are going into a new adventure with Do you like Beethoven? together with the pianist Daniel Goiți, in a musical marathon that will last more than two weeks. This year, we want to offer to the public an incursion in the universe of the Sonata for cello and piano, by Beethoven. I am convinced that this choice will bring the best answer to our challenge: Do you like Beethoven? Not only we are answering this question, the instrument players fascinated by the universe of this titan of the classical music, which established the sonata as a musical genre and gave the cello and the piano equal roles in these compositions that musicologists are naming "total, fluid sonata". The public is answering, first, and I am sure it will be a unanimous answer, without doubt. We will meet in Timisoara, at the start of the tour, on October 11th. On the map of our adventure will follow Sfântu Gheorghe, on October 14th, Alba Iulia, on October 15th. We will be in Deva on October 16th, in Bistrita on October 17th and in Iasi on October 18th. We are coming to the Radio Hall on October 24th and will close the tour in Pitești, on October 30th. We invite you to travel together!"
