In the great finale of our second contemporary classic affair, we discovered a series of common values between Western and Eastern Europe. More precisely, between the Germanic performance of a Russian nationalist, “refereed” by Enescu's sonorities in a space that evokes the traditions and masterpieces of Iași. Alexander Krichel presented two suites - Mussorgsky’s gargantuan and virtuoso exhibition, in parallel with the fusion between Romanian folklore and impressionistic tendencies of Enescu's second piano suite.
