For the Day of Radio, happy birthday!...with musical certainties and hopes

Tuesday, 2 November 2021 , ora 19.33

On the 1st of November 1928, 93 years ago, the institution of the public Radio was formed known today as Radio Romania. Yet again on the 1st of of November, but in 1998, at the marking of 70 years of Romanian radio, the Radio Home Publishing House is formed, expression of a cultural project through which Radio Romania set out the reintroduction of the documents from its own archives in the national media circuit.

Along with the valuing of the creations and voices of the historical, literary and dramatical personalities kept in Radio Fonoteca, the Radio Home Publishing House adds in the public circuit the dimension of the musical creation as well - compositional and interpretive. As such, Radio Romania brings back big personalities from the pleiad of musicians from the past ( George Enescu, Mihail Jora, Theodor Rogalski, Alfred Alessandrescu, Ionel Perlea, Constantin Silvestri ) and also from the present ( the conductors Cristian Macelaru, Horia Andreescu, Cristian Mandeal, the violonist Alexandru Tomescu, the cellist Marin Cazacu ) in front of the public.

It's also essential the fact that the national Radio has the configuration of the future in sight as well, through the discovery and support of young artists who represent bases of certain artistic value for the development of the Romanian musical culture.

That's why on Monday, 1st of November, on the National Day of Radio, the Radio Home Publishing House is launching the debut album of young Cadmiel Boțac, one of Romanian piano's big hopes, currently a student at the University of Music and Arts from Viena. The album called "CADMIEL BOȚAC - Piano recital. Beethoven, Chopin, Enescu" is the result of two distinctions offered to the young artist from Radio România Muzical: the special prize received in 2017 at " Transylvanian International Piano Competition " from Brasov - which consisted in a session of special recordings realized a year later at Radio Romania, in the Studio of concerts - and the scholarship " The Descendants of musical Romania ", won in 2020.

The album "CADMIEL BOȚAC - piano recital. Beethoven, Chopin, Enescu" can be listened to integrally on Monday, the 1st of November, starting from 19:00, at the record news show "Music box", hosted by Cristina Comandașu at the Radio România Muzical channel, partner in making this album.

I appreciate the trust which the Radio had in me and the support that you offer to the young musicians who are in development. I consider that, for a young musician, any way of promoting is extremely welcomed, and the radio channels are surely an excellent way of promoting us, of making us known to the world, to the listeners, and I can't do anything but be happy that this disc will be broadcast on the Day of Radio. ( Cadmiel Boțac ) Cadmiel Boțac is one of those rare artists who don't try to stand out through displaying personality or through easily shocking the public. He puts the letter of the score and a somewhat sobriety interpretation above the show. But, as he says, it's a sobriety which comes with a grattitude and a joy of making music, of being on stage so many times, of working with extraordinary people.

More than that, his art is grounded on a high spirituality which strongly and authenticly enlivens him, a fact which transpires in the interpretation of these three works from this album as well. Sonata no. 23 op.57 in F minor "Appassionata" by Ludwig van Beethoven, Sonata no. 2 op. 35 in B-flat minor "with funeral march"by Frédéric Chopin Sonata no.2 op.10 in D major "Sonorous bells" by George Enescu, give back profound feelings, some serious and oppressive, others more lighthearted and uplifting, chosen by the pianist Cadmiel Boțac to encourage a continuous search of the true meaning of human existence.

The album (CD) "CADMIEL BOȚAC- Piano recital. Beethoven, Chopin, Enescu" can be bought, at a producer price, from the Radio Home Library or through online order on the Radio Home Publishing House's site: www.edituracasaradio.ro.Also, it can be bought from the distribution partners.
