“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything”. Plato
In our latest article, we told the tale of the boy who grew up to be the most important Romanian musician, George Enescu. But for that we needed to take you back to the 20th century, the same time when music brought freedom and wide experimentation with new musical styles, forms that challenged the accepted rules of music of earlier periods. The invention of musical amplification and electronic instruments, especially the synthesizer, in the mid-20th century revolutionized popular music and accelerated the development of new forms of music.
With that in mind, we bring you back in the present with a list of the upcoming events in Romania:
