Astonishing Daniel Ciobanu in the 'Enescu Concerts' Series

Thu. 3 May, 2018 7:00 pm

 

03/05/2018 @ Romanian Cultural Institute, 1 Belgrave Square, London SW1X8PH

 

Described by the music critics as “sensational”, “devilish”, “unforgettable” and “a name to be shouted from the rooftops”, virtuoso pianist Daniel Petrică Ciobanu makes a long-in-the-making appearance in our ever more popular 'Enescu Concerts' Series. The winner of the Public Prize of famous Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition in 2017, Daniel describes his music as “a cocktail of serious classical music combined with the lollipops and fireworks of the piano repertoire”. As such, the programme is a real treat, featuring works by Silvestri, Enescu, Beethoven, and Mussorgsky.

 

Programme:

Constantin Silvestri – “Bacanale”

Ludwig van Beethoven – Sonata Op.27, No.2 “Moonlight”

George Enescu – “Carillon nocturne”

Modest Mussorgsky – “Pictures from an Exhibition”

 

Daniel Petrică Ciobanu started playing the piano at the age of nine after his grandfather – an organist – transmitted him the ‘keyboard virus’. Lessons with various teachers followed before Daniel won a scholarship to undertake a year of study at Stewart’s Melville College in Edinburgh, later being drawn to Scotland’s national conservatoire. A Bachelor of Music degree was followed by a Master’s, during which time Daniel studied under Head of Keyboard and Collaborative Piano, Aaron Shorr. He continued his studies at École Normale de Musique de Paris, until 2017 and is now enrolled at the Berlin University of the Arts. The Arthur Rubinstein Competition success was only the latest musical triumph for this brilliant pianist who also won the 1st Prize at “The Bromsgrove International Musicians' Competition” in Rio de Janeiro (2014), the 1st Prize and Special Prize for best “Classical Sonata”  at the “UNISA International Piano Competition” in Pretoria (2016). In 2011, he was selected by Lang Lang to perform along with him in his famous '100 Pianos' show at the Royal Festival Hall in London, which gave Daniel the opportunity to play Silvestri’s 'Baccanale' for an audience of 3000. The pianist performed with many Orchestras including the Israeli Camerata and Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in Tel-Aviv, Cergy Pontoise Orchestra Paris, Chapelle Musicale de Tournai in Belgium , Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Philarmonique du Maroc, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra of Pretoria, Orquestra Sinfonica do Brazil and the  KZN Philharmonic Orchestra.

Eliade, Back in Belgravia

Tue. 8 May, 2018 7:00 pm

08/05/2018 @ Romanian Cultural Institute, 1 Belgrave Square, SW1X8PH

Following the enthusiastic reception in Britain of Mircea Eliade’s first novel, 'Diary of a Short-Sighted Adolescent', Istros Books continue their incursion into the renowned philosopher and author’s creative universe with an equally enthralling autobiographical novel. 'Gaudeamus' is in fact 'Diary'’s sequel, following Eliade’s ambitious alter ego during the university years. At RCI London on the 8th of May, Professors Sorin Alexandrescu and Amanda Hopkinson join translator Christopher Bartholomew and editor Susan Curtis Kojakovic in a conversation about the literary relevance and cultural legacy of the legendary author. 

“Readers will recognise in these pages the joy of a life about to blossom, of the search for knowledge and the desire for true love. Already an accomplished writer as a young man, this follow-up to his 'Diary of a Short-Sighted Adolescent' reveals a keen observer of human behaviour, a seeker of truth and spiritual fulfilment whose path would eventually lead him to become the ultimate historian of 20th-century religions.” – Istros Books

Sorin Alexandrescu is a professor at the University of Bucharest and the director of the inter-disciplinary Centre of Excellence in Image Studies (co-founded in 2001). Born in Bucharest and a nephew of Mircea Eliade, he taught comparative literature at the University of Bucharest and, later on, Romanian language and literature at the University of Amsterdam as well as semiotics and modern philosophy. In his first capacity he published the International Journal of Roumanian Studies, and organized the Association Internationale d'Etudes Roumaines, both devoted to various aspects of Romanian culture in Western Europe, as well as a Dutch Committee for the Defense of Human Rights in Romania (1988). As a semiotician, he is the founder of the Dutch Society of Semiotics and an interdisciplinary Research Institute (ISELK) at the University of Amsterdam. In 1998, he was appointed adviser for culture to President Emil Constantinescu in Romania and in 2002 he resumed his academic activities in Bucharest. Sorin Alexandrescu has written extensively on Romanian identity and literature, theory of literature (Logique du personnage, Paris, 1973), American literature (Faulkner, 1969) and, the last decennia, on visual and cultural problems. His 1998 essay The Romanian Paradox is considered as one the most poignant explorations of Romanian cultural distinctiveness while his different writings on Mircea Eliade, especially on his Portuguese years (2006), have become important references in the assessment of the great writer’s intellectual and literary legacy.       

 

The former Director of the British Centre for Literary Translation at the University of East Anglia, between 2002 – 2010, Amanda Hopkinson has, since 2011, been Visiting Professor in Literary Translation at City University London where, with Ros Schwartz, she established the Translate in the City annual Literary Translation Summer School. She has translated some fifty works from French, Portuguese and Spanish, focusing mainly on contemporary fiction from Latin America. Her translations include fiction and poetry, human rights and biography, and authors Dominique Manotti, José Saramago, Paulo Coelho, Isabel Allende, Carmen Boullosa, Elena Poniatowska. Forthcoming this year are the short story anthology 'Lisbon Tales' [OUP], and a co-translation of 'The Hole' by José Revueltas with Sophie Hughes [New Directions]. She also writes widely on photography and has written two biographies of Latin American photographers and 'A History of Photography in Mexico'.

Susan Curtis-Kojakovic is the founding director of Istros Books, an independent publisher of contemporary literature from South East Europe, based in Bloomsbury, London. Istros Books was set up in 2011 to showcase the very best of literature - both fiction and non-fiction - from the Balkan region to a new audience of English speakers, bringing the best of European writing through quality translation. Its authors include European prize winners, polemic journalists turned crime writers and social philosophers turned poets. A former teacher, Susan has lived for periods in Belgium, Croatia, Italy and Slovenia, working with refugees and in schools. She writes fiction and also translates from Croatian/Serbian.

Christopher Bartholomew was introduced to Romanian while engaged in extended gap year mission work in Romania from 1998 – 2000. He continued Romanian studies during a B.A. in English from Brigham Young University and an MBA at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah. He stumbled across the early novels of Mircea Eliade in a used bookstore in Bucharest’s University metro station in 2004, during a summer researching the author’s early periodical writings and alleged connections to the ultra-right Legion of the Archangel Mihail. Chris felt that he had discovered a fresh voice, with the power to initiate readers into the complexities of interwar Romania. He has collaborated with Istros on translations of Eliade’s first two novels including, most recently, “Gaudeaumus”.

10 - 11/05/2018 @ Romanian Cultural Institute, 1 Belgrave Square, London SW1X8PH

 

We continue our Centenary celebrations with 'My War', a compelling new show inspired by famous Queen Marie of Romania’s Wartime Diaries. Starring versatile Anca Doczi as the passionate and restless monarch who made a decisive contribution to the Romanian victory in the First World War and subsequent creation of United Romania, the performance is directed with expert assurance by Cristian Luchian and created especially for RCI’s theatrical space. A revealing character study, faithfully portraying the great woman in a time of distress and eventual redemption. A Romanian Cultural Institute and Immersive Theatre co-production.

 

 

MY WAR

Script: Cristian Luchian & Anca Doczi

Based on Queen Marie of Romania’s Wartime Diaries

Language: English

With: Anca Doczi

Stage direction & video design: Cristian Luchian

Musical arrangements: Bogdan Văcărescu

Light design: Leo Bacica

Producers: Romanian Cultural Institute, Immersive Theatre Company

 

 

Anca Doczi is a theatre artist and applied drama practitioner with a background in acting, performance and animation theatre. Her approach to creating performance is through practice-as-research where she explores different methodologies, especially immersive and participative theatre, to discuss the social issues of her communities and to learn about their interactions, about conflict and reconciliation, about the hidden stories of our public life. Her latest project is MEMODROME, an applied drama technique she has coined and developed during her Ph.D. years, working with memory, performed testimony and simultaneous dramaturgy. She has navigated slowly from theatre to performance, from acting to devising, form practice to theory. She is an alumna of the Faculty of Theatre and Television at the Babeș-Bolyai University in Cluj Napoca, Romania, and of the Centre for Performance Art Development at University of East London, UK.

 

Acting tirelessly at the intersection of various creative mediums, Cristian Luchian engages his artistic work in areas such as immersive theatre, site specific and interactive live art, visual arts and video design. Between 2007 and 2010, Cristian assumed the art direction of the Underground Theatre Festival in Arad, Romania, while in 2008 he co-founded the Nocturne Social &Political Theatre programme at the Puck Puppet Theatre in Cluj-Napoca. Since 2011, when he moved to London, he has taken on his work in both fields of theatre and visual arts: he has co-founded Immersive Theatre Company where he directed and researched in the field of participation and immersivity, while from his Projector Room Studio he has submitted painting, graphic and digital media art. Cristian Luchian opened the RCI London theatrical space in October 2016 with a hugely enjoyable show based on the theatre of Romanian avant-garde visionary Tristan Tzara. A selection of his art portfolio can be viewed on www.immersivetheatre.com and www.cristianluchian.co.uk.

Exquisite Romanian Art Books at Tate Modern

Fri. 18 May, 2018 6:00 pm - Sun. 20 May, 2018 6:00 pm

 

18 - 20/05/2018 @ Tate Modern – Turbine Hall, Bankside, London SE1 9TG

 

We are proud to support, for the third year in a row, Romania’s participation at Offprint London (18-20 May), one of Britain’s largest art publishing fairs, which brings together at Tate Modern artists and publishers from all over the globe. The Romanian display of art books, curated by art historian Alina Șerban, will feature a fine selection of books from P+4 Publications, presenting some of Romania’s best contemporary art and architecture.

The publications included in the exhibition are ‘The Book of Notebooks’ by Dan Perjovschi, ‘Of Puppets and Humans’ by Ciprian Mureșan, ‘The Factory of Facts and Other (Unspoken) Stories’, ‘Enchanting Views. Romanian Black Sea Tourism Planning and Architecture of the 1960s and '70s’ and ‘Evicting the Ghost. Architectures of Survival’, among others.

P+4 Publications is a Bucharest based independent publishing programme dedicated exclusively to the promotion of Romanian contemporary art and architecture, showing special concern for the cross-cutting relationships between the artistic practice, academic research and experiment in design. Initiated under the umbrella of P+4 Association by art historian Alina Şerban, the publishing programme is non-profit, self-managed, and aims to explore the printed medium as a space for research into and reflection upon the themes and ideas previously tackled by artists and architects in their practice.

Offprint is a traveling art publishing fair featuring discerning projects across a wide range of media. Now in its second year, the London fair includes books, zines, vinyls, posters, prints, websites, magazines, and blogs from over 140 participants in the fields of contemporary art, graphic design, literature, poetry, philosophy, and experimental music. In collaboration with Tate Modern and curator Simon Baker, Offprint London 2015 dedicated a special space for photobooks, inviting 70 independent photobook publishers from all over the world. Acknowledging a dissolving effect of traditional sites and media (museums / books / schools) and their respective activities (curating / publishing / teaching), Offprint showcases an alliance between printed strategies and digital cultures within the art world, presenting concrete examples of the contemporary dissemination of artistic practices.

We honour the Romanian Centenary (1918-2018) through a potent symbol of unified, democratic and diverse Romania that emerged after the First World War. The installation, pertaining to our unique bio-diversity, is made of plants from all the historical provinces that came together in 1918.

The work, placed right in Belgrave Square in the heart of London, evokes both Romania’s natural beauty, which has remained largely unspoiled despite the inexorable advance of modernisation, and is an invitation to natural and cultural discoveries.

The project benefited from the generous advice of Professors Elena Săvulescu and Mihaela Georgescu from the University of Agricultural Sciences in Bucharest.

 

Additional Events: Photo Exhibition, Palatal Delights

We accompany the main events of 'Florilegium' with a digital photographic exhibition depicting the most beautiful parks of Bucharest, old and new, shot by some of the best Romanian landscape photographers. The exhibition is an invitation to discover Romania’s multi-faceted and culturally rich capital and its cultural attractions.

We honour the Romanian Centenary (1918-2018) through a potent symbol of unified, democratic and diverse Romania that emerged after the First World War. The installation, pertaining to our unique bio-diversity, is made of plants from all the historical provinces that came together in 1918.

The work, placed right in Belgrave Square in the heart of London, evokes both Romania’s natural beauty, which has remained largely unspoiled despite the inexorable advance of modernisation, and is an invitation to natural and cultural discoveries.

The project benefited from the generous advice of Professors Elena Săvulescu and Mihaela Georgescu from the University of Agricultural Sciences in Bucharest.

 

Additional Events: Photo Exhibition, Palatal Delights

We accompany the main events of 'Florilegium' with a digital photographic exhibition depicting the most beautiful parks of Bucharest, old and new, shot by some of the best Romanian landscape photographers. The exhibition is an invitation to discover Romania’s multi-faceted and culturally rich capital and its cultural attractions.

Many thanks to Musiu from Timișoara, the Banat region, one of the first Romanian restaurants featured in the prestigious and exclusivist Gault & Millau Guide, for the culinary delights prepared by chefs Alina Hambaraș, Gabriel Săftulescu and Florin Ghibirdic, which are only matched by the exquisite wines provided by AVINCIS winery, lead by Cristiana Irinel and Valeriu Stoica, one of the top wine producers of the famous Drăgăşani hills in Oltenia region.

Book Launch: 'The Transylvania Florilegium'

24 May 2018, 19.00 | Romanian Cultural Institute. Free, please book your ticket here

In the presence of RCI President Liliana Țuroiu and Ambassador Dan Mihalache

Introduction by Lady Henrietta Pearson and the RCI London Director Dorian Branea

When HRH The Prince of Wales first visited Transylvania in 1998 he was “totally overwhelmed by its unique beauty and its extraordinarily rich heritage”. His Royal Highness saw the importance of its flora and, fearing that some plants might be vulnerable to changes in farming methods, suggested it should be recorded in the form of a florilegium. Lady Henrietta Pearson and the Addison Publications took up this urgent task and the result is the book that we are preparing to launch - a superb publication, 'The Transylvania Florilegium', which is not only beautiful but also important as an appeal for the protection of the environment.

Using the talents of thirty-six of the finest contemporary artists from all over the world, 'The Transylvania Florilegium' is a two-volume edition which contains paintings of 124 plants from a list compiled by famous botanist Dr John Akeroyd FLS, an authority on European plants, who has been working on Transylvanian flora for over fifteen years. The project, headed up by Helen Allen FLS, artist and Principal of The Chelsea School of Botanical Art based at The Chelsea Physic Garden, has taken seven years to complete, with groups of artists visiting the region each year for five years.

In addition to the prints of the watercolours, there is an introduction by Christopher Mills, formerly Librarian at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Dr Akeroyd has also written an informative text for each plant including scientific botanical details as well as recording where and when the illustrated material was found. As with 'The Highgrove Florilegium', which inspired this publication, the paintings have been through a rigorous selection panel of artists, botanists and art historians to ensure a high standard of work.

His Royal Highness, who is writing the Preface, has kindly agreed to sign each set of volumes.

Each volume of 'The Transylvania Florilegium' measures 19½ x 14 x 2 inches. (495 x 355 x 50mm)

Talk: Romania’s Amazing Bio-diversity by Dr John Akeroyd

24 May, 19.00 | Romanian Cultural Institute. Free, please book your ticket here

A revealing talk by revered botanist, conservationist and writer John Akeroyd, one of Britain’s great specialists on Central European and Romanian flora. Dr Akeroyd, who since 2000 has regularly visited Romania, will speak about our country’s unique botanical richness and the British contributions to the conservation of its ancient landscape, especially the wildflower meadows.

“For some time now, foreign visitors have been flocking to southern Transylvania in Romania, largely drawn by the remarkable architecture of its medieval towns and villages. Today, however, more visitors are coming to its hills to see the wildflowers… These old pastoral systems lie at the heart of Romania’s rural economy, but life is inevitably changing as tractors gradually replace horses.”  (John Akeroyd - extract from Gardens Illustrated Magazine, May 2018)
