Florian Mitrea writes of his new release Following the River: "Some of the memories I am most fond of are hot summer nights spent on a boat in the middle of a channel, deep in the heart of the Danube Delta, listening to the gentle whisper of the willows and distant bird calls, and counting the stars in the sky. I have been fascinated by the Danube for as long as I can remember. This mysterious river joins people from Central and Eastern Europe, carrying their stories, their songs, their dances, their joys and sorrows. The music of the people living on the banks of the Danube is spellbinding in its capacity for expression. I feel very lucky to have grown up in an area where this music is still very much alive and an essential component of people's lives. For years I was able to immerse myself in this enchanting musical universe and Following the river is the resulting unity between my classical training and my childhood interactions with folk musicians. This album will hopefully transport the listener on a journey as tumultuous and as poetic as life itself.".
