Four young Romanian musicians, all graduates of the music academies from Iasi and Brasov.They have important musical careers working within the renowned Romanian Philharmonic Symphonic Orchestras, “Mihail Jora” Bacau, and “Black Sea” Constanta, where they are principals or soloists at their sections.
