Bach online, on the “George Enescu” Philharmonic season

Thursday, 22 October 2020 , ora 14.15

Alongside the concerts held live on Thursdays evenings on the Romanian Athenaeum's scene the "George Enescu" Philharmonic continues to broadcast recordings during the online season. Thus, on Wednesday, the 21st of October starting with 7.00 pm, an artist group of the "George Enescu" Philharmonic Choir will perform selections from Johann Sebastian Bach songs which were recorded in June and July 2020 in the Romanian Athenaeum Concert Hall.

The "Bach online" project designed by RazvanGeorgescu and staged by a musicians group of the "George Enescu" Philharmonc is "a pleasure in a disoriented and confused world", says the composer Dan Dediu. "I appreciate the enthusiasm with which this project came to life and I hope that it will win over a lot of supporters, spectators and disseminators. In a world where the battle for the public attention takes place through increasingly easier, more accessible and sometimes unforgivably comfortable programs, the Bach online project aims for depth and reflection. Will we be able to get over the custom of surfing the internet and focus on listen Bach's music? It's a challenge that this project is launching. Bach's music certainly remains out bread and butter", Dan Dediu emphasizes.

"Everyone present at this concert, soloists or instrumentalists that were invited, felt as if it's their duty to offer an encouragement message through the healing force of the Leipzig Cantor's beautiful music. The program includes moments of deep philosophical reflection that were meant to build up a consolation, hope and peace of mind atmosphere in an uncertain and apprehensive time", concludes Razvan Georgescu, one of the project's creators.
