Concerts, composers' talk, book launch and film: 29 June at 7.30pm & 6 July at 7.00pm

Be not afeard: the isle is full of noises,
Sounds and sweet airs, that give delight,
and hurt not.
The Tempest, Shakespeare.

The London Schubert Players welcome you to the mysterious sounds of their next journeys:
- the magical musical world of Ravel and Faure
- the film-like music of the Jewish-Ethiopian story which brought many international awards to Radu Mihaileanu's film Va, vis et deviens
- a meditation by a Serbo-Croat composer on Japanese poet Basho
- the colourful and delightful rhythms of Venezuelan and Romanian dances
- the poetical paths of Heine, Baudelaire and Tennyson put to music by composers Silvestri, Cashian and Nickol.

The two events are part of Invitation to Composers international project, which has enriched Europe’s cultural heritage in 2010 and 2011 with 40 valuable works inspired by music, literature, visual arts, history and nature. It is building bridges between great traditions of music of the past and contemporary thought, without the use of electronics and non-musical experiments. It was one of 87 projects selected by the European Commission out of 298 for its recent cultural programmes. It has caught the interest, imagination and admiration of over 100 professional composers and 80 performers worldwide, the composition department of London’s Royal Academy of Music, record distributors, festival directors and music lovers.

The book to be launched contains the Bournemouth Symphony players' impressions about the legendary Romanian conductor Constantin Silvestri; and the unique film, shown publicly in Britain for the first time on July 6th, a tremendous performance of Silvestri conducting the French National Radio Orchestra in Liszt's poem Tasso and Silvestri's own work Prelude and Fugue (Toccata).

We want to share these journeys, entrance is free and a glass of wine will be waiting for you!

See you soon,
Yours in Music,
Anda and the London Schubert Players

Urari pentru Sfintele Sarbatori Pascale / Happy Easter!

Sfintele Sarbatori Pascale sa va aduca lumina si implinire sufleteasca !

Echipa Societatii Romnaca


All our best wishes for your Easter Holidays!

The Team of Romanca Society

Te-ai coborat -muzica si versurile Corneliu Pavel

Icoana realizata de catre Aurelia Chiriac Carabinieru -Atelierul de iconografie al Societatii Romanca


Durerea striga in nestire
caci Adevarul s-a luat la harta
cu Omenirea dusa in ispita
pe-ntunecatele carari.

Caci ne-au cazut si pleoapele si gandul
Cand plansului-i venise randul
S-adune povara stransa pe comori
S-o curga in sirurile de cocori.

Cati ingeri s-au nascut pe cale
De nu ajunsera nici aripi, nici ninsoare
sa stinga flacara aprinsa cu Neindurare
de-atata Neputinta , Ura, Inselare?

De-atata plans si ganduri ferecate
De-al meu si-al tau si al Durerii
Pe marea de lacrimi adunate
Din cer ploua marunt si bland

Cu Pace si Mister.

Fragment din volumul Parfumul ingerilor de Ionela Flood, Ed Deliana, Bucuresti 2010

Taberele de spiritualitate si traditie romaneasca

Dragi romani,

Un anunt special pentru cei cu copii de varsta scolara, despre
taberele deosebit de frumoase pe care Mitropolia noastra le
organizeaza in fiecare vara. Anul acesta, tabara de la Manastirea
Tismana a fost mutata in mod special cu 10 zile mai tarizu, pentru ca
sa poata participa si copii din Marea Britanie (unde, dupa cum stiti,
scoala se termina mult mai tarziu).

Pentru detalii, va rog sa ma contactati pe mine sau pe organizatori
( sau Bogdan Grecu, Belfast).

Doamne ajuta.

Pr. Mihai
