The project White Accordion Nights International Festival - 11th edition, in Romanian musical life, registered in the field of "Performing Arts", proposes the organization of a concert, performed by world-class instrumentalists in accordion music, with inserts from Romanian folklore, international folklore, classical or contemporary jazz. The "White Accordion Nights" International Festival, now at its 11th edition, is a project of the artist Emy Drăgoi, whose musical career began and was accomplished under the sign of the accordion. In fact, he ensures not only the organization and artistic direction of the festival, but performs in each edition in extensive recitals, both as a performer and composer. The main aim of the festival - which has aroused the interest of the public, artists and critics throughout all ten editions so far - is to promote the accordion and to attempt - always successfully - to argue in front of the general audience that this instrument is one of the most complex, on which one can perform the most diverse musical genres, from traditional music, fiddle music, to the classical and even jazz genre. Presentation of the 11th Edition In line with the tradition, the next edition of the festival will take place on October 16th-17th, 2020, at the I.L. Caragiale National Theatreof Bucharest. This time, the festival's program will focus on classical, tango and jazz music, along with Emy Drăgoi - considered the best jazz accordionist of the moment, both in terms of performance,- reorchestration of famous songs, pertaining to other musical genres, but also of composition - whereas famous artists are bound to perform: Domi Emorin - France, Romeo Aichino - Italy, Roman Jbanov - Russia, William Sabatier - Argentina, Ion Drăgoi - Romania, etc.. An interesting accordion exhibition will also be held, many of the exhibits being part of the private collection of the artist Emy Drăgoi. Emy Dragoi and his guests are the forerunners of the accordion's emancipation towards the freedoms offered by this musical genre. The accordion festival will present to the public a manifold programme, which includes classical music, variété, cafe concert, as well as jazz, tango, etc. The concert will take place at the I.L. Caragiale National Theatre of Bucharest, on October 16th, 2020, at 7.00 p.m., and on October 17th, 2020, at 8.00 p.m., the show will be invited within the festival, Magic National.

Ștefan Hrușcă - Carol Recital

21 December 2020

Private event hosted by the National Theatre of Bucharest. The organiser is exclusively liable for the quality and content of this event! The sounds announcing the birth of the Lord are almost inseparable from the warm, comforting quality of Ştefan Hrușcă’s voice and so it will be this December: you will listen again to the carols you grew up with, but also rarely heard choruses, picked by Ştefan Hruşcă himself and brought to the audience’s attention to honour the Romanian's creative spirit, on December 21st, 2020 at the Grand Hall of the National Theatre. For an hour and a half, you are invited to forget everything and receive as a gift: White Flowers, Three Shepherds, Mild Is Mild, Oh, What Wonderful News, but also the immortal Prayer for parents. The magic of the evening will be replenished by fragments from home stories, from the singer-songwriter's dear Maramureş, or by stories about the origin and the way in which the songs joined his repertoire.  About the encounter with the public that awaits him every year, Ştefan Hruşcă said: “2020 is the year in which our adaptability has been put to the test, the year in which so much has changed. That is why I come home, with a burning desire more than ever, to bring a drop of what has remained unchanged from my ancestors. I am waiting for you to carry on together the tradition of Romanian carol concerts. Even if "distance" is the watchword of the year, in our souls we shall be closer than ever. " Please read here the spectators' obligations regarding measures to prevent SARS-CoV2 contamination.    Translated by Simona Nichiteanu
