The 2017 programme of our beloved Enescu Concerts Series debuts with a homage to the unforgettable pianist and composer Dinu Lipatti, 100 years since his birth, offered by charismatic duo Alexandru Tomescu (violin) and Angela Drăghicescu (piano). The peak of the all-Romanian programme, featuring pieces by George Enescu and Tiberiu Olah, is Lipatti's Sonatina for violin and piano, a brilliant piece that demonstrates the tragic musician's outstanding skills as composer, performed in UK premiere.

Alexandru Tomescu has proved himself capable of taming any score, no matter how complicated, as his „Paganini – angel or demon?" project, a turning point in his career, fully demonstrates.  After studies in Switzerland with Tibor Varga and in the U.S. with Eduard Schmieder, Alexandru Tomescu returned to Romania to undertake a personal mission. Through concerts and lectures,  he has strived to demonstrate that classical music is a world open to all people, that it can create social harmony and that everyone deserves the chance to explore it. In parallel to a fruitful career in Europe and the world, filled with successes in halls such as Théâtre des Champs Elysees – Paris, Carnegie Hall – New York or Metropolitan Arts Centre – Tokyo, after appearances with conductors such as Valery Gergiev, Kurt Masur or Christoph Eschenbach, Alexandru has continued to actively spreads this message in Romania and elsewhere and to conduct social campaigns on behalf of important cultural causes. His "Bach to Basics" CD was voted the best classical music album in Romania in 2016.

Pianist Angela Drăghicescu has quickly established a reputation as a much sought-after collaborative artist and chamber musician. She performs regularly in major centres throughout the world with many of this generation's most renowned musicians. Recent engagements have included performances at Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, Benaroya Hall, Rudolfinium Prague, as well as many other venues in Europe, the US, and Asia. She has performed with many of today's leading artists including Concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic Frank Huang, Sandy Yamamoto, Virgil Boutellis, Remus Azoitei, among others. Her doctoral thesis "Nicolae Bretan: A Guide to Romanian Art Song" is the first textbook for Romanian diction for singers and has become an invaluable source for non-native speakers wishing to perform Romanian Art Song. Her mentors include the great pianist Michael Gurt, Josette Hirsu, and Anne Epperson. 

Orlando Murrin is writer and editor who has been fascinated by Dinu Lipatti since his schooldays, and has spent the last year researching the life and career of this great musician, the centenary of whose birth falls on 19 March 2017. His investigations have led him all over Europe and brought him into contact with students, friends and descendants of the pianist and his wife, shedding new light on his family and entourage, as well as the turbulent political background against which his short but brilliant life was played out. Murrin is the initiator of a successful petition to have the Lipatti family home in Bucharest spared from demolition with the aim that it will be eventually turned into a museum in memory of Lipatti and his music.

In the first part we will focus on the situation in Greece and will present the report and recommendations issuing from the EESC visit to Lesbos and Athens in October 2016. In the second part we will enlarge the picture and look at what the EU and civil society can do to tackle the crisis in particular with regard to vulnerable refugees and migrants. 
Your presence and input are most welcome!

 La situation des réfugiés et des migrants handicapés
Le CESE et son groupe d'étude permanent sur les droits des personnes handicapées organisent une audition publique sur la situation des réfugiés et des migrants handicapés le 14 février 2017.

L'objectif de cette audition est d'attirer l'attention sur la situation des réfugiés et des migrants handicapés en sensibilisant les organisations travaillant avec les migrants et les réfugiés sur les droits et les besoins spécifiques des personnes handicapées.

Dans la première partie, nous nous pencherons sur la situation en Grèce et présenterons le rapport et les recommandations émanant de la visite du CESE à Lesbos et à Athènes en octobre 2016.
