Ion Voicu – Hora mărțișorului

Ion Voicu (1923-1997) was a Romanian violinist and conductor.  He is one of the world’s great violinists.  In 1969 he founded the Bucharest Chamber Orchestra which is an internationally acclaimed ensemble.  The list of conductors and musicians that Ion Voicu has performed with is incredible.  Voicu was a very high level music pedagogue. He taught at many of the world’s leading music institutions.  Ion Voicu made hundreds of recordings.  Here is a recording of a piece played by Ion Voicu.   This piece is quite a catchy tune.  I was amazed  how he played the piece as I am sure you will be as well.
