THE TIBERIUS QUARTET
The Tiberius Quartet was founded in 1994 at the ‘Gheorghe Dima’ Music Academy of Cluj, Romania, by Sandor Devich (member of the Bartok Quartet). Assisted by Mr Devich the Quartet attended various master classes, such as the International Bartok Seminarium (Szombathely, Hungary); Internationale Sommerakademie Prague-Vienna-Budapest (Reichenau, Austria); and Orlando Festival (Holland).
The Tiberius Quartet was also present in the master classes of the Britten-Pears School for Advanced Musical Studies (Aldeburgh). The Quartet was distinguished with international prizes such as: 2nd place at Mozart International Contest (Cluj, Romania), 1st and 2nd prizes at Klassik Wiener Preis (Reichenau, Austria), etc. The Quartet’s repertoire includes pieces by Mozart, Haydn, Brahms, Schubert and Beethoven.
The Tiberius Quartet are: Tibor Molnar (violin), Zsolt Leitman (violin), Joszef Molnar (viola), Peter Kozma (cello).
For the time being, the Tiberius Quartet are supported by a Ratiu Foundation UK scholarship in order to attend the Chilingirian Quartet Master Classes at West Dean College, Chichester. They have offered to play in London for the friends of The Romanian Cultural Centre, The Ratiu Foundation UK and The Relief Fund for Romania.
THE RELIEF FUND FOR ROMANIA (RFFR) is a British charity, based in the UK which raises funds and spends them in Romania. RFFR is one of the Ratiu Family related Foundations. RFFR either funds Romanian charities – with whom RFFR works closely on various long-term community based projects, or delivers services directly with its own projects. RFFR also runs national campaigns and training programmes particularly focusing on human rights in institutions and community care of the elderly sick and dying.
RFFR works in established partnerships with Romanian registered charitable organizations. The main partner is ‘Fundatia de Sprijin Comunitar’ (Community Support Foundation) which was formed by staff who have worked with the Relief Fund from the outset. Where relevant, RFFR works with specialist organizations such as the World Health Organisation, Action Space Mobile and Music as Therapy.
The Relief Fund for Romania was founded by leading Romanian exiles from Communism led by Ion Ratiu (1917 – 2000), distinguished Romanian diplomat, entrepreneur, publisher, writer and humanitarian. He devoted his life to the fight for democracy in Romania.
