Enescu’s Romanian Rhapsodies Got Vocal Version

Enescu 9 sept

A Unique Event at “George Enescu” International Festival:
Enescu’s Romanian Rhapsodies Got Vocal Version

It is for the first time ever when Enescu’s Romanian Rhapsodies – included in their repertoire by the most important orchestras worldwide – got a vocal version. The project entitled “From Classical to Jazz” was conceived by Teodora Enache. The two works received a modern, jazz interpretation and the musical arrangements were produced by Teodora and the guitarist Călin Grigoriu.

The event was sold out 3 days before and it took place in the Great Hall of the Bucharest National Theater on September 9th, 2019. Created especially for the 2019 edition of the “George Enescu” International Festival, the project featured Teodora Enache (voice), Călin Grigoriu (guitar), Joca Perpignan, from Israel, (percussion) and Răzvan Suma (cello) – as a special guest.

Besides Enescu’s Rhapsodies, the concert included also classical works like Bartók’s Romanian Folk Dances, Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, Bach’s Air on a G String and Pachelbel’s Canon.
