A music coming from gods, a music starting on paper, from black lines and dots, to reveal a series of black and white photographs of strong or sensitive personalities and intangible oddities around a classical music show.
Cornel Brad is a photographer living in Bucharest, Romania. In the last years he found that his deepest passions are photography, people and music. All these came together when he was granted access behind the scenes of Romanian Athenaeum, Royal Palace Hall and Romanian Opera during the twenty-first edition of “George Enescu Festival”.
