Between Paris and Bucharest: BRÂNCUȘI TRIO in a Recital at the Radio Hall

Wednesday, 16 April 2014 , ora 10.25
Two Romanian artists who have already created an impressive career abroad - the cellist LAURA BURUIANĂ and the pianist MARA DOBRESCU, together with the French violinist ELSA GRETHER, who received the first prize of the Paris Conservatory, at only 15 - will arrive in Bucharest, to perform in a special recital on the stage of the Radio Hall on Wednesday, 24th April, at 19:00.

The programme of the evening will be a Romanian-French one, just like their professional path, which was partly sketched during the meeting between France and Romania. The programme will include a work by Enescu - Trio in G minor - and two scores by the Belgian composer César Franck, who developed his artistic activity in Paris; it is about Trio no. 4 and Trio no. 1.

In 2010, Laura Buruiană, together with Datenik Khourdoian (violin) and Mara Dobrescu (piano), created the BRÂNCUȘI TRIO, and in 2011 they recorded Enescu′ s trios, creations which had not been recorded before. The album was released by the French record label, Zig-Zag Territoires; the release was followed by a series of concerts in France, England, Germany, Hungary, Portugal, Spain, Poland, Holland, Italy, Israel, Sweden, Austria and Romania.

The members of the Brâncuși Trio performing at the Radio Hall will be: ELSA GRETHER- violin, Laura Buruiană - cello and MARIA DOBRESCU - piano.

In 2003, the cellist LAURA BURUIANĂ won the first prize of the Young Concert Artists International Competition, in New York, and of the Arturo Bonucci European Cello Competition, in Rome; these represent the start of a beautiful international career. She was invited to perform at the Kennedy Centre in Washington, at the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, at the Konzerthaus Berlin, the Fontainbleau Castle, at the Hanover Expo 2000, etc. She was also a soloist of several important orchestras, such as the Bari Symphony Orchestra, the Berlin Chamber Orchestra, Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra, etc.

Another Romanian artist who obtained the same international appreciation for her talent, on French land , is the pianist MARA DOBRESCU; after graduating the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, she moved to France. She is invited to perform in recitals or as a soloist on important stages in Paris : Théâtre Mogador Theatre, Théâtre de Châtelet, l'Auditorium du Musée d'Orsay, Cité de la Musique, Salle Cortot, Orangerie de Bagatelle, etc; she also performs in recitals and concerts in Spain, Germany, Austria, Russia, the Czech Republic, Japan, Argentina, Australia and the USA.
At only 15, the young violinist ELSA GRETHER (France) received the first prize in violin, of the Paris Conservatory; her artistic career was then marked on several meridians, starting from the famous Mozarteum University of Salzburg, to the Indiana University and the New England Conservatory (Boston - USA). She was invited to perform on important stages around the world, together with impressive orchestras, such as: the Carnegie Weill Hall in New-York, Le Printemps des Arts de Monte-Carlo Festival, the Salle Cortot in Paris, the Salle Flagey in Brussel, the Art Museum of Indianapolis, etc.
