Tuesday Evening Season - 5th February 2013
"A musical mind well-shaped combining with an amazing ability of exploiting the instrumental ways" - this was written after his first performance on the stage of the Small Hall of the Romanian Athenaeum. On Tuesday he came back on the same stage, his former performance fetched a numerous audience who filled the skittish auditorium of the Athenaeum.
"I'm glad that this time I enjoyed a quieter and more numerous audience than the last time. It's a great pleasure to perform in this auditorium in an intimate atmosphere. (Daniel Dascălu)
The performance of the pianist Daniel Dascălu was warmly rewarded by the audience. A young musician of 22 years with a luxuriant record and various participations at masterclass courses, a student in the class of the well-known pianist Dana Borșan at the National University of Music in Bucharest. Daniel Dascălu had many concerts in the main musical towns of the country such as Iași, Constanța, Brașov, Piatra Neamț and Bucharest and abroad, in Wienna, Cremona and München.
On Tuesday, Daniel Dascălu chose to perform Partita no 6. in E minor by Johann Sebastian Bach and Piano Sonata in F minor Op.5 by Johannes Brahms.
'These are two works which have a relation almost paradoxical, meaning they are reversed in what regardes the style, but with almost the same emotional value.' (Daniel Dascălu)
I discovered in his performance a real musical adventure within a well-known programme, performed with a finest pianistic technique, with expressivity and artistic maturity. I enjoyed a beautiful musical 'surprise' with the performance of Daniel Dascălu, who, during every public performance, confirms his talent by developing an aesthetic musical career in this way.
