An Alexandru Tomescu Concert in aid of Pro Patrimonio with the kind support of the Embassy of Romania and the Romanian Cultural Insitute.

„Alexandru Tomescu makes uncommon music out of Paganini’s Caprices, playing up contrasts, letting each phrase live and breathe. I expected an evening of champagne bubbles. Tomescu serves up whiskey.” (David Larsen – Metro Magazine, New Zealand).

The Violinist is not just playing before his public, but cultivates an intense dialog with it, whether on stage, TV or the Radio, he talks about the music and explains what being an artist in XXIst century Romania is, what nurtures his inspiration and why classical music deserves a chance.

Of major interest to Alexandru Tomescu is Romania’s built and natural heritage which unfortunately is so much neglected and generally in desperate need of restoration. Alexandru joined the Board of Pro Patrimonio, the Romanian National Trust, three years ago to assist in Pro Patrimonio’s mission of returning to active life beautiful and important heritage buildings all over Romania. He is most passionate about this aim and generously gives of his time, his Stradivarius and his unique talent whenever possible in his very full international concert schedule, dedicating all proceeds of ticket sales and funds raised to support the work of Pro Patrimonio. He does so knowing that the very existence of Pro Patrimonio and the work it undertakes is in severe jeopardy due to lack of funding. Probably the leading violin soloist of Romania today Alexandru Tomescu’s concerts are not to be missed – simply ask anyone who has experienced one!

Join us on 13th of December from 18:30 at the Romanian Cultural Institute, No 1 Belgrave Square, London SW1 where Alexandru Tomescu will perform compositions from Bach, Enescu, Filip and Porumbescu.
