CLASSICAL MASTERPIECES THAT CHANGED THE WORLD PERFORMED BY TALENTED MUSICIANS OF THE MOMENT
Alexandru Tomescu is a renowned Romanian violinist, awarded with many national and international prizes at classical music festivals. Since his debut in 1985 he gave over 200 concerts and recitals in 26 countries (France, Netherlands, Japan). He was recognized for his mastery by the Romanian state who granted him the privilege to play the Stradivarius violin, previously owned by Ion Voicu.
Alexandru proved he can tame any form of music, especially after completing the project „Paganini – angel or demon”, which became a milestone in his career. This was the moment when Tomescu rediscovered his identity, a moment when his career took a great turn – that of changing the existing perception in Romania about classical music. After studying in Switzerland with Tibor Varga and in the US with Eduard Schmieder, Alexandru was inspired to prove that classical music has the power to bring one in tune with oneself and the world.
