The Academic Radio Choir - 75th Anniversary: a Romanian Music Concert

Friday, 24 April 2015 , ora 9.29
THE ACADEMIC RADIO CHOIR which is the most long-lasting vocal-symphonic ensemble in Romania turns the beautiful age of 75 years old in 2015. After a first a capella anniversary concert, which took place in February and which was dedicated to universal choral music, the ensemble proposes a beautiful Romanian music concert at the Radio Hall on Thursday, 30th April, 2015, at 19:00. The evening's programme will reunite vocal scores signed by musicians as Irina Odăgescu-ȚUȚUIANU, Felicia DONCEANU, Cornelia TĂUTU, Adrian POP, Radu PALADI and Vasile TIMIȘ.

The repertory was selected by DAN MIHAI GOIA, who has been the conductor of the Academic Radio Choir for 15 years.

ʺOver these 15 years since I have been in charge with the Academic Radio Choir, I have collaborated with many Romanian musicians, but the most closed relationship, the truest from the artistic and human points of view, I have had is the one with Irina Odăgescu-ȚUȚUIANU, Felicia DONCEANU, Cornelia TĂUTU, with ADRIAN POP and with the regrettable maestros Radu PALADI and Vasile TIMIȘ. I have strongly collaborated with every each of them, I have tried to understand their creative message and along with the members of the Academic Radio Choir, we have wanted to get close to the artistic truth in their works.

All the sounds and the musical moments that you will be able to enjoy with us will send your soul and your mind to some extremely beautiful musical areas, created with the aid of these choral creations that reach the genius of the six most important Romanian creators of choral music whose works - we owe to them - are included in this concert.ʺ DAN MIHAI GOIA commented on the event that he created and he will conduct.
