George Enescu, one of the most famous Romanian composers, and I chose a classical, Romanian Rapshody. The clip also shows some beautiful images of my country.



As for the instrument, this was really hard, but I found the Erhu, a Chinese 2 string fiddle, with a small, usually hexagonal or octagonal body, dates back to 1100AD. And much to my surprise I also found many videos, but chose the following



Quite spectacular!

Are you from Romania? My ancestors are from Hungary. And I absolutely love Romanian folk dances.

@Karen - yes, from Timisoara, 60km from the Hungarian border. Glad you like the music, me too :)


I really enjoyed that first piece, and the scenery was absolutely gorgeous!


Yes, the scenery is beautiful--as is the music.

Motto

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
