“What Makes Culture Romanian?”
Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery Executive Director, Shirley Madill is of Romanian heritage. After hearing the KWS concert conclude with Mussorgsky’s masterpiece ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’, Shirley will lead an illustrated introduction to Romanian visual arts. KWS Music Director Andrei Feher and guest pianist Teo Gheorghiu are both Romanian-Canadians and will contribute their thoughts about what makes Romanian music distinctive, especially appropriate given that the concert opens with Enescu’s ‘Romanian Rhapsody No 1’. There is unlikely to be a simple answer to what defines Romanian culture, but the ensuing discussion is bound to shed some light on Andrei’s cultural background.
