At the core of the recital is Sonata no.3 George Enescu for Violin and Piano" 'in Romanian folk character', one of the most phenomenal masterpieces of the 20th century, a piece that inspired by dynamic Romanian folk music.

The recital will end with a surprise... I will give you a hint! Would you like to hear fiery Romanian folk songs in the style of lautari (or Romanian folk fiddlers) arranged for violin and piano?
