Notes and Editorial Reviews

In her first album titled Joujoux (Toys) the highly praised Romanian pianist, Maria Radutu explores insightful pieces by outstanding composers of the 19th and 20th Centuries. The centerpiece of the album is the suite titled Joujoux by her compatriot Mihail Jora which has been described as a musical journey through European locales and styles. Also in Joujoux, Jora quotes five of his contemporaries (Ravel, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Debussy and Bartok). Combining musical charm with skillful composition, Jora created a very special sound atmosphere which Maria Radutu skillfully reveals.
