The SoNoRo 2016 International Chamber Music Festival opens on Friday at 19:00hrs, EEST, with a concert to be hosted by the Union Hall of the Cotroceni Presidential Palace in Bucharest, organisers announced on Wednesday. 

They say the playbill comprises works by Camille Saint-Saens, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Darius Milhaud, Olli Mustonen, performed by Diana Ketler and Olli Mustonen (piano); Mihaela Martin, Philippe Graffin and Hugo Ticciani (violin); Razvan Popovici (viola); Frans Helmerson and Maximilian Hornung (violoncello). 

The second concert is scheduled for Saturday at the Military Hall of Bucharest, 19:00hrs EEST, with performances of Franz Liszt, Erik Satie, Christoph Willibald Gluck, Claude Debussy and Paul Hindemith, by Diana Ketler and Louis Lortie (piano); Mihaela Martin, Philippe Graffin and Hugo Ticciani (violin); Razvan Popovici and Christian Nas (viola); Frans Helmerson and Maximilian Hornung (violoncello). 

"On Sunday, the rhythm will be more allegro, and despite having a record five concerts, the day will be among the festival's most relaxing. (...) It all starts at 11:00hrs, EEST, at POINT; next will be a brunch and a relaxing cup of coffee at the Ion Mincu Memorial House, at 14:00hrs. Tea will be served at 16:00hrs at the Loewendal Foundation. To be followed by a glass of wine at Galateca Gallery, at 19:00hrs. The evening closes at the Reading Room of the Faculty of Letters, with the day's last concert to be staged at 22:00hrs, which spares some time for an exchange of opinions on the day and Hodkinson's philosophy of lie," according to the organisers. 

The 11th edition of SoNoRo comprises 20 concerts and meetings with 23 musicians from 18 countries, unfolding October 28 - November 14 in Bucharest, Timisoara, Cluj-Napoca and Bistrita. 

The claiming concert will be staged at the Radio Hall, as a first, with the public to choose by vote for the duration of the festival the composer whose work they want to hear. For the closing covert, the winning composer will be added to Carl Maria von Weber and Antonin Dvorak. 

Started in 2006, SoNoRo is a cultural project under the high aegis of Romania's President.
