Imago Mundi Ensemble offers a contemporary perspective on the rich Romanian musical tradition, enlivening the irresistible scores of the urban folklore of the past. In Riga, the ensemble will present its most recent project, entitled 'Isvor. George Enescu' / 'The Source. George Enescu', which investigates the great composer’s indigenous sources of inspiration, the ones that give two of his best known works, the Romanian Rhapsodies, as well as many other compositions their unmistakable local flavour. With traditional melodies and rhythms reproduced on period instruments and illustrated with stunning visuals, the concert will not only offer a rare insight into Enescu’s laboratory, but a true musical discovery.

"Good taste, refinement, a cultured sound and professionalism are the defining qualities of the ensemble and their repertoire. Besides their specific sound, in which simplicity of the melody combines with the subtle instrumentation, certain arrangements succeed in creating an original mix of oriental folk, Renaissance tones, African echoes and American minimalism." (Professor Dan Dediu, the National University of Music, Bucharest)
