He will perform Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini by Rachmaninoff.

The Travelling Piano, pianist Horia Mihail's second extraordinary tour, scheduled between 21 May and 30 June 2012, started with a first journey in Transylvania in Mediaș - the city where the Romanian Broadcasting Society brought a high-quality concert piano -, Dumbrăveni and Sighișoara, after which were programmed recitals in Brașov, Oradea, Baia Mare, Cluj Napoca and Pitești and concerts with the orchestra in Tg. Mureș and Brașov.
The Travelling Piano tour will continue with recitals and concerts in other cities in Romania (to which will be added a postscript in Chișinău, on 11 July, at the Piano Nights International Festival). After the 15 June, pianist Horia Mihail will cross the country from North to South and from East to West, going from Iași to Caracal and from Mamaia to Sânnicolau Mare. The second travelling piano made available by Radio Romania will accompany him on the journey towards these cities and most especially to where there are no concert pianos that can facilitate organising such events.
