Sergiu Cioiu – Reciting Nichita. The 11 elegies 13 December 2023
Performance in partnership with the National Theatre in Bucharest. On December 13, 2023, at 7 pm, we invite you to the Atelier Hall of NTB for an exceptional recital of music and poetry, in which the 11 eleven elegies of the great poet Nichita Stanescu, masterpieces of Romanian poetry, are highlighted on stage by the unmistakable personality of the artist Sergiu Cioiu. A performance that will delight Nichita's lovers and also the young people who now have the chance to meet him. The music of the performance is played live by violinist and musician Sabin Penea, in harmony with Nichita's spirit and Sergiu Cioiu's inspiration. Nichita invites us to rediscover ourselves through his 11 elegies: "The poet's poetry stirs the intimate poetry of each of us. A poet is all the greater when those who read him discover not him, but themselves". (Self-Portrait, 1982) About the great artist Sergiu Cioiu, Nichita Stanescu said that "he becomes himself a spectacle. The joy of his interpretation opens our eyelids with a rising star." ("La o adică", 1982) "Sergiu Cioiu established himself in the 60s and 70s of the last century in the elite of Romanian promoters of quality pop music with a predominantly poetic substrate. Soloist employed between 1964 and 1967 at the Constantin Tănase Revival Theatre in Bucharest; present in August 1965 on the stage of the famous Olympia Theatre in Paris, selected by none other than Bruno Coquatrix and compared to Yves Montand; then, embracing an activity of "freelancer", revealed on prestigious podiums in Romania, France, USSR, Poland, Belgium, Holland, Israel; between 1972 and 1975, he became an actor at the Ion Dacian Operetta Theatre in Bucharest; then, between 1975 and 1982, he became an acting teacher. These are the main milestones of a career that consecrated Sergiu Cioiu as an outstanding artist-intellectual and gave him a great reputation." (Florian Lungu, critic and radio journalist) Violinist Sabin Penea, born in Tulcea, graduated from the National University of Music, then studied in Graz, Austria, with violinist Silvia Marcovici, and in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany, under the guidance of violinist Sebastian Hamann, where he also obtained his second master's degree in music. He is the winner of the first prize at the Kreutzer competition in Liege, Belgium, the special jury prize at the Marie Cantagrill competition in Saint-Girons, France, the silver medal and the Dvořák special prize at the Plovdiv International Chamber Music Competition, Bulgaria.   Translated by Andreea Codrea-Boeriu

A Winter's Tale – Alifantis & FragileBand concert 06 December 2023
Event hosted by the National Theatre from Bucharest. The responsibility for the quality and content of this event lies solely with the organizer! In my childhood days, all stories began with once upon a time... And because what's next will be a story, I'll tell you: Once upon a time, a long time ago, a young man just stepping into life. And he kept walking until the road brought him to the great city of Bucharest where he discovered and discovered himself. And what came out was what came out. Since then, fifty winters have fallen upon my head, since I first stepped onto the stage. Now when I realize how much time has passed I don't know whether to be cheerful or sullen, proud or modest, enthusiastic or melancholic. I have no nostalgia and no regrets. I feel fulfilled and that's all. I think with joy that out of fifty winters, the last ten have been spent with these wonderful people who are with me today in this particularly beautiful winter tale. Beautiful and fragile like an old porcelain. Thank you, Razvan, Mihai, Lyuben, Adrian. I am grateful for all that you have given me and allowed me to undertake with you. Why A Winter's Tale? Because this winter I bring you this gift, FragileBand. Something that will seem to come from a whole other dimension. From where beautiful stories are born. With true kindness, with the magic dust of selflessness, with the magical scent of the tree, with the beauty of children's eyes watching him adorned. And, of course, with sadness for those fragile souls who don't have all this. 50 years or 10 years is not a lot, but it's not a little. Thank God for all these years, thank God for smiling on me and allowing me to do what I liked and thank you for being there for me. In concert halls, on stage and in my heart. Fragile, as an artistic construction, was conceived as a multicultural project, a gentle, sweet show. We put together living, acoustic instruments, vibrating with emotion, like the lively fibers from which they were born, with poetry that delicately or vigorously erupts in feelings, love stories, feelings, fears, encounters, separations, like our existence. What came out of this convoluted alchemy? A music in various rhythms and languages, a journey from fado to rock, on whispers of Romanian, Spanish, Portuguese, Greek, Aromanian poetry, a symbolic elixir of life, which I hope you will enjoy! So let's step into the world of stories, the magic of the stage, into a corner of my soul, Santa Niculae Alifantis.   Translated by Andreea Codrea-Boeriu
