Chisinau, 26 February /MOLDPRES/ - Artists of Moldova, as well as from abroad will perform at the 58th edition of the Martisor International Music Festival. In next March, Martisor will bring artistic bands, valuable singers and actors from Moldova, Romania, Italy, Greece and France on stages from Chisinau, as well as from another 43 settlements of Moldova and in several European cities.        

At a today’s news conference, Culture Minister Sergiu Prodan said that the festival from this year came with more novelties – from the graphical picture, which teaches people to celebrate the spring, up to the geography of shows, which for the first time ever will reach all those 38 districts of the country, covering all Moldova and will go even beyond its borders. Thus, Martisor will come to the greatest stages of Moldova, in Chisinau and in district centers, as well as in dozens of villages and towns. Another novelty deals with the artistic diversity of the events, as artists from more countries and of more music genres will participate in the festival. On 1 March, for the first time ever in its history, the festival will host a show of electronic music – Electric Spring, at the Chisinau Arena. Thus, Martisor is reinvented and becomes a bridge between the traditional and innovating things, a bridge between generations.       

”We expect concerts of classical, modern and jazz music, choral and organ recitals, opera, ballet and folk dance shows. We expect virtuoso violin and piano players, applauded by everybody, as well as famous singers of lyric, light and folk music. Martisor is for us and about us. It is the tradition which gives us uniqueness and modernity which connects us to the artistic circuit of the world. I urge you to go to as many events as possible of the festival, as proof of the solidarity with our artists and of the support for our culture,’’ Sergiu Prodan said.       

Light, folk and classical music concerts will take place at the Nicolae Sulac National Palace, the Palace of the Republic, the Maria Biesu Opera and Ballet in Chisinau.

For the first time ever, Martisor will be held also in communities from the Diaspora. On 6-12 March, Moldovan fellow countrymen from more European cities are expected to come to the play, The Star without a Name, by Mihail Sebastian, staged at the Mihai Eminescu National Theatre by Alexandru Cozub. The plays will be presented in the cities of Cascais (Portugal), Frankfurt (Germany), Madrid and Santander (Spain), Padua and Milan (Italy), London (United Kingdom) and Dublin (Ireland), as well as Brussels (Belgium).

The budget’s festival is of about five million lei this year.

The first edition of the Martisor International Music Festival took place in 1966 at the Chisinau-based Serghei Lunchevici National Philharmonic, the founder of which was the Philharmonic’s director Alexandru Fedco. The festival is meant to make happy the native audience with the presence of famous artists not only of Moldova, but also from over the world, turning Chisinau into a true cultural centre.
