A modern take on the sounds of historical Romania

Have you ever wondered what Romania sounded like in the olden days? For EUROPALIA ROMANIA, the Anton Pann Ensemble will present extraordinary compositions by the 18th century Ottoman composer Dimitrie Cantemir. Their performances shine new light on these classical sounds and bring the Baroque repertoire into contemporary consciousness. They include music once played at the courts of Romanian princes and boyars, but also songs that sprung from slums and villages. The Ensemble’s youthful renditions revitalise this oeuvre and offer an accessible approach to traditional music.
The Anton Pann Ensemble (est. 2003), named after the 19th century Wallachian composer Anton Pann, is a group of musicians with a shared passion for old Romanian culture. The ensemble’s rediscovery and promotion of music from the middle ages to the late 19th century, some of which has never been sung before, aims to enhance the cultural value of Romanian musical tradition. They have previously performed in major European cities such as London, Madrid and Venice. This year also marks the return of ensemble members Derya Turkan and Murat Salim Tokac, who were also part of the EUROPALIA TURKEY (2015) programme.
