The 'Fantastic Symphony' under the Baton of the Israeli Conductor Noam Zur!

Monday, 11 February 2013 , ora 8.07
In mid-February, an outstanding evening based on romantic scores augurs the coming of spring: the cellist Răzvan Suma joins stage with the National Radio Orchestra under the baton of the Israeli conductor Noam Zur, whose mentor was none but Zubin Mehta - along with the three composers: Wagner, Schumann and Berlioz. This is definitely an offer one cannot refuse.

Hector Berlioz's Fantastic Symphony, one of the most beloved scores of all time that was dedicated to a popular British actress in Paris, in the 19th century, will be performed at the Radio Hall, on Friday 15th February, 2013, at 19:00. The prelude and the death of Iseult in Wagner's composition Tristan and Iseult are to carry us to the realm of a legendary love story framed by the Concert in A Minor for cello and orchestra which is the score of another German composer, Robert Schumann. Referring to the concert, Pablo Casals, one of the most renowned cellists par excellence, claimed: "It is one of the most sublime compositions one could listen to nowadays."
