Haydn and Schumann's symphonies conducted by Horia Andreescu on the stage of the Romanian Athenaeum

Tuesday, 8 June 2021 , ora 15.00

The "George Enescu" Philharmonic announces that on Monday, June 7th, at 12.00, tickets will go on sale for the symphonic concert with the public on Thursday, June 17th and Friday, June 18th, 2021, in which the "George Enescu" Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra will be conducted by Horia Andreescu. The program of the concert on June 17 and 18 consists of Symphony no. 48, in C major by Joseph Haydn and Symphony no. 2, in C major, op. 61 by Robert Schumann.

Joseph Haydn (1732-1809), a friend of Mozart and a professor of Beethoven, marked Viennese musical classicism. He became one of the most prolific composers of all time, often being called the father of the symphony because he developed the genre into a superior form. Symphony no. 48 is nicknamed Maria Theresia, because it was composed during a visit of Empress Maria Theresa of Austria in 1773.

Symphony no. 2 by Robert Schumann (1810-1856) is "a musical gem, which the conductor Sergiu Celibidache considers to be the most symphonic of his creations, with one of the most beautiful adagios ever composed. Both Maria Theresia de Haydn and Schumann's Symphony No. 2 are unjustly forgotten works that deserve to be highlighted. I am glad to do this together with the George Enescu Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra ", says the conductor Horia Andreescu.

For the new concerts with the public scheduled until the end of the season, the capacity of the Romanian Athenaeum Hall can be occupied in proportion of 50%. "I am happy that the audience returns to the hall of the Romanian Athenaeum. The musicians need the audience, the energy of the music lovers, which they will feel live. We cannot live without the audience in the hall", underlines the maestro Horia Andreescu.
