Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pianist Sinziana Mircea writes of her new release: “I do not know how to write poems, but I love reading them, as I love the poetry of the music and the music of a whispered love poem. My [album] is a sound poem dedicated to Love. In all its forms. It resonates with the first verses of Rabindranath Tagore’s famous poem “Unending Love”… In the most wonderful way, my favorite Bengali poet brings together philosophy and religion, blended with the deep emotions we all experience in our lives.” Young Romanian pianist Sinziana Mircea had her debut at the Romanian Athenaeum, the main venue in her country, at the age of 7, followed by numerous appearances in Europe. She made her American debut at the age of 11 and began touring at the age of 14.

She is an active chamber musician, soloist, and is a Steinway Artist. Read less
