The first solo album of a former child prodigy from behind the Iron Curtain, reaching artistic maturity. Three musical eras, seven composers, two centuries melting into a delicate, romantic feeling, like a story of a singing piano.
The main work in JouJoux is the suite “Joujoux pour ma Dame” by Mihail Jora. Five little pieces, five little brain teasers, quoting five contemporary composers, to be guessed by the young lady that Mihail Jora wants to seduce. The first and the last ones are Ravel and Bartok, two extremely different composers who lived in the same period. Radutu enlarges this idea over the musical eras before and after, by playing a positive and energetic Chopin together with a very deep and emotional Liszt, as well as a fine, minimalistic Schönberg together with a groovy interpreted Ligeti.
