The first concert in the Classix series is of historical importance, being the first piano recital ever held in a cathedral in Iasi. The event was centered on a program that connected the human experience with the spiritual one and was presented by the renowned pianist from Iasi, Dragoș Cantea. The interdisciplinarity that Classix Festival wishes to offer to classical music was supported visually by projections illustrated on the Cathedral dome, thus transforming the ordinary concert experience into a transcendental one.
