Spectrum XXI International Festival, Fourth Edition
To attend a performance involving Iancu Dumitrescu and Ana MariaAvram is a real privilege and an intimate experience. Usually the interaction between conductor and ensemble is prim and proper, there is an
expected form of behaviour and it is followed. However, I always feel when seeing Iancu Dumitrescu and Ana Maria Avram in action with the artists breathing life into their pieces that there is a lot more, you see all
parties suffer to bring the audience beautiful music. There is nothing staged or papered over. Emotions run free. In conducting Dumitrescu and Avram have a unique style.
I am reminded much less of a classical conductor and more of a couple of wizards conjuring up controlledexplosions of fiery sound from the members of the orchestra. We were treated to a dazzling display interaction between wizards, performers and electronics which alternately threatened to bring about the apocalypse or sooth us gently. It would be hard to choose any single piece as being the ‘best’.
However, Bolids and Contemplations (Epsilon) for three percussion players stood out for the sheer technical mastery of the performers in an incredibly demanding piece where strict discipline and lightening reactions were essential. The sense of movement and the overwhelming barrage of sound which contrasted with moments of almost
quite contemplation left me buzzing. The evening has to be one of the most memorable musical performances of 2009, I really regret not having made it to any of the other concerts in the series. Hopefully the wizards will be back again next year to work their magic!
