Jewish Concert

„Mihai Eminescu” University Library Iași
Str. Păcurari no. 4, Iași

The Jewish heritage is widespread today, and Iasi is no exception. The city has historically developed mainly through trade and is by definition multicultural, hosting Greek, Armenian, Turkish, Jewish, and others under the same roof eager for development. Thus, the Classix series promoted both the Jewish identity of today and the artistic innovation of the State of Israel through a special program that contained important classical music works from yesterday and today. The concert took place in a sacred place of the Iasi culture, the BCU Aula representing an acoustic jewel, being considered by many artists a masterpiece for chamber music concerts in Romania. Two works in a first audition in Romania of contemporary Israeli composers Weiner and Aslanyan illustrated the innovative perspective of the state of Israel not only in the digital fields of the 21st century, but also in contemporary musical art.
