Alex Simu Quintet “Echoes of Bucharest” – Album Release Concert

_DSC2303

Echoes of Bucharest – a reflection of the present, a fragrance of the past and a glance into the future of a city with a rich multicultural legacy.

_DSC2317
The compositions of this suite encounter no rules or boundaries, only love, and the urge to create and share. The vision is built on two main pillars – innovation and heritage, and aims to shape sounds into a unique audience experience.

_DSC2338

The music and the concept behind the composition process are a natural reflection of Alex Simu’s experience with his hometown, expressed through the lens of his emotional and historical ties. All sounds are inspired by the history of Bucharest, from its creation and evolution, to its contemporary times and future.

_DSC2355

Being found at the juncture between East and West, Romania has been benefiting from rich cultural influences which contributed to the creation of various identities throughout its historical evolution.

_DSC2406

Purely folkloric sounds, the dramatic influence of the Ottoman Empire, the Phanariot epoch, the Little Paris illusions, the two world wars, the communist regime, the revolution, and the contemporary Bucharest are all subtly mirrored into the spirit of the music.

_DSC2444

All the various influences that have carved the cultural identity of Bucharest over time come to life as melodies, rhythmic themes, and motifs. Complementing the original compositions, thematic fragments belonging to George Enescu and Dimitrie Cantemir have been specially arranged to harmonize with the contemporary language of jazz and free improvisation.

_DSC2453

All these elements are beautifully crafted through a unique combination of the classical jazz quintet, with the romantic quintet of the Western European classical music.
