Rhythms of European Folk from the Romanian Zamfiresku Trio

Romanian guitar ensemble “Zamfiresku Trio” along with soprano Bahar Durdiyeva and the State Symphony Orchestra conducted by Rasul Klychev, performed the fiery music of European nations for Ashgabat citizens this evening.

In the hall of the Makhtumkuli Theater, the artists showed a program comprised of Romanian, Portuguese, French, Spanish folk and classical melodies that had long crossed the borders of countries and became national wealth.

Opening the evening with the grandiose “Romanian Rhapsody No.1”, the State Symphony Orchestra set up the audience to inyetprete the concert not with the mind, but with the heart. In the intertwining of the melody, rapidly changing the tempo, a spiral of emotions was heard, restrained by a violinist, composer, conductor, pianist, teacher, brilliant lecturer, organist, music writer, “Romanian Mozart” George Enescu, and skillfully directed the conductor Rasul Klychev.

When they first appeared on the theater stage, the Zamfirescu family and their close friend Adrian Noir announced to the guests that they consider themselves “children of the world” originated from Romania, and therefore chose such a wide repertoire so that Turkmen people could learn more about European culture.

Charismatic Adrian Noir made jokes the whole evening and told funny stories, mixing Romanian, English and Russian languages, and the public apprised with laugh and applauses, understanding him on some emotional level.

Joyful enthusiasm was complemented by the harmonious sound of guitars. A little bit sad, a little desperate, and sometimes completely emotional, the music touched the soul every time. And gradually became more and more familiar.

And when the Black Eyes began to play, the audience with stormy applause agreed that Europe and Turkmenistan became closer to each other – many remembered the lyrics of the famous romance, which made the musicians very happy.

The concert ended with performance of the work of the Romanian Gypsy composer Gregory Dinik, who reflected in his music the contradictory, but very harmoniously combined features of his nation: passion, aristocracy, desire for the future and respect for the past.

Each chord, sounded at the concert, found a response in the souls of the Turkmen public. And distant Europe has become closer to Turkmenistan.
