Project N-escu – Contemporary variations on a theme by Enescu

In this time of musical mash-ups / adaptations / covers / remixes, several young Romanian composers try their hand in an admiration exercise: the variations. The seven creators involved in Project N-escu bring to the table seven different views on a very famous aural image: the first theme of the 1st Symphony in E flat op. 13, written in 1905 by George Enescu. The seven works use different instrumental combinations between the given ensemble: clarinet, vioin, cello and piano.

This event was concieved at the initiative of composer Adina Sibianu and is part of a series of concerts and projects, “Enescu 60”, organized in 2015 by the National “George Enescu” Museum for the commemoration of 60 years from Enescu’s death – as well as “Creative Bucharest” organized by the “George Enescu” Festival (30.08-20.09 2015).

The works of Sebastian Androne (winner of the “Enescu Prize” for orchestral piece in 2015), Elena Apostol, Vlad Baciu, Șerban Marcu, Mihai Măniceanu, Mihai Murariu and Sabina Ulubeanu will be premiered on September 17th, 5 p.m., at the “Enescu” Museum (Calea Victoriei 141, Bucharest), by the SonoMania ensemble (Mihai Pintenaru – clarinet, Raluca Stratulat – violin, Eugen-Bogdan Popa – cello, Mihai Maniceanu, Mihai Murariu – piano) and special guest performer Adriana Maier (piano). Conductor: Vlad-Razvan Baciu.

CIMRO is a proud partner in this project, having initiated the “contemporary variations” series of projects in 2014, with the “Frescomania” concert during CIMRO DAYS.

The “Enescu” Museum wishes to continue this project in the following years, involving more and more young composers and thus stimulating their creativity in reinterpreting one of our most prestigious composers’ work.
