From the Podium: December, a sacred and magical time for music!

Danubia highlights music from cultures of Central Europe including Austrian, Czech and Romanian. The concert opens with the George Enescu’s Romanian Rhapsody No. 2 in D major composed in 1901. This is a one movement introspective work on a grand scale that employs themes from Romanian music tradition which the composer treats in a rhapsodic symphonic manner almost like a through-composed piece with an improvised feel.
