Activity in the last three years have had as main objective to deepen knowledge and repertoire violin soloist and chamber in the postmodern period. With the new orientation and knowledge represented by Vox Novus Music Foundation in New York - USA, represented by the current generation led by Robert Voisey and Douglas DaSilva had numerous recitals, concerts and festivals under this prestigious musical American institution. Also, as an active member of the ensemble Musica Nuova Consonante I came into contact with Belgian school myriad of postmodern composers belonging, of distinguished names such as Frederic Devresse, Piotr Lachert and Boudewijn Buckinx. I also played numerous solo and chamber opuses with all led by Maestro who founded Hyperion Ensemble- Iancu Dumitrescu, and other eminent composers of local opposites, (some of my work being dedicated): Șerban Nichifor,Liana Alexandra, Octavian Nemescu, Maia Ciobanu, Ana-Maria Avram, Darius Nemes-Bota and many others... I have studied with the Maestro and teachers like Serban Nichifor, Stefan Gheorghiu and a lot of great teachers of Romanian School of Music (National University of Music in Bucharest)! The first teacher in my life was my father who brings my special love to music and special to my first love- violine! I attended MBA courses in the Faculty of Performing Art, with the objective of improvement and assimilation of all knowledge related to contemporary music.I am teacher of violine in Constanta from 2009 and also i play with pleasure this kind of music wherever! Also, I finish my final thesis with brio!
