Have you always dreamed of playing an instrument that you can easily take with you anywhere to create a great atmosphere? Then this course is perfect for you! You will learn to play the clarinet, including its role in the traditional ensembles from Romania and Moldavia with the typical ornaments and stylistic features of the various Balkan traditions. Characteristic of this music is the wealth of melodic variations. This music differs greatly from other Occidental music genres. Energy, melody and rhythmic feeling contribute to form a complex sound in this musical style in which the clarinet occupies a unique place.
During the course, special attention will be paid to the sound of the clarinet in combination with technique and expression through learning traditional dance music such as hora, sârba, batuta, joc mare,… To better understand these styles, they will be analysed together with the teacher, all adapted to the level of the pupil/group of pupils.
But do not forget the most important aspect: this is festive music. Like all folk music, it is part of everyday life and the various family celebrations. During the lessons, you will therefore experience this pleasant atmosphere, which will put you in a good mood anyway!
Adrian Receanu was born in 1980 in Moldova where he began his studies of clarinet and traditional flutes. In 1999 he was invited to the ‘Rencontres Internationales de la Clarinette Populaire de Glomel’. Adrian then returned to France to perfect his skills at the Conservatoire de Boulogne-Billancourt and at the ATLA in Paris.
Since 2000, he has participated in various projects, both on stage and in the studio: The Other Europeans Band (a European research project on klezmer / lautaresc repertoires from the 1920s to the present day in Moldavia), French chansons with Enrico Macias and Nanook, Romanian music with Norig and Rona Hartner, klezmer music with Jake Shulman-Ment and Sphilkès, ball music with La Menina sin Nombre and contemporary music with Thérèse Brenet’s “Boustrophédon”.
He has a great passion for the transmission of these genres and can regularly be found at workshops and master classes organised in France and abroad on the clarinet within traditional music: e.g. Yiddish Summer Weimar, École de Musique de Plouay, Errichetta Underground Festival Roma or at the Musée de la Cité de la Musique of the Paris Philharmonic.
