The Romanian Evening at “Ohrid Summer” will feature a concert by the F.A.M.E.’S European Orchestral Performing Institute and Irina Muresanu, solo violin. The concert will take place at the Church of St. Sophia, starting at 9 p.m. The program includes compositions by Desen, Falja, Flynn, Dinicu, Rutter, Bach, Valli, Rustam, Fung, Piazzolla, and O’Connor.
The F.A.M.E.’S European Orchestral Performing Institute is a music education center created within the framework of the F.A.M.E.’S company, which specializes in professional music recording and production. Organized within the premises and professional studio of F.A.M.E.’S in Skopje, the center provides a unique platform for professional music education, exchange of experiences, and creativity, aimed at young talented instrumentalists from Europe.
This project is part of the program for Pan-European Cultural Entities (CREA-CULT-2021-PECE), supported by the European Union. By creating professional and original orchestral and musical content through various digital platforms, the project aims to reach new audiences and transmit the experiences and cultural diversity of the European musical heritage.
Violinist Irina Muresanu, with Romanian heritage, is a laureate and winner of several prestigious violin competitions, including the International Competition in Montreal, the Queen Elisabeth Competition, the University of South Africa (UNISA) Competition, the International Competition in Washington, the “Shadt” Competition in Allentown, and more. Muresanu has been on the stage from a young age, receiving excellent reviews that have contributed to her development as an exceptional soloist, performing recitals and chamber music performances. Recently, Muresanu was awarded the prestigious Fulbright scholarship by the University of Maryland, as well as the “George Enescu” grant from the Romanian Cultural Institute, recognizing her achievements and providing funding for research in the “City of Music” in Paris, dedicated to the project “Infinite Strings” – a platform aimed at promoting Romanian violin music created in the last 150 years.
Irina Muresanu is sought after as a soloist on both sides of the Atlantic, performing in the United States, Europe, Canada, Asia, and South Africa. Her distinctive thematic programs contribute to her being equally active on concert platforms as a soloist and chamber musician. Muresanu is dedicated to performing works from contemporary music literature, many of which have been composed specifically for her. Her performances have been recorded on various international record labels.
Tonight’s concert at “Ohrid Summer Festival” is supported by the Embassy of Romania in the Republic of North Macedonia.
