I've never heard a note of his - anyone?  Anybody?

Ahh yet another Romanian composer. This feels my heart with joy! :) (I am Romanian myself).

Unfortunately, I have not heard any of his music. I will check on youtube to see if there is anything!

I see some of his songs are by Lucian Blaga and Mihai Eminescu. Both of them are great Romantic (Romanian) poets. Mihai Eminescu in particular is Romania's greatest poet, a genius (literally), and in my opinion can easily stand toe to toe with any of Britain's/France's greatest poets! The only problem is that the language is a little more inaccessible for foreigners, which is understandable! (shame, for it really is a beautiful language!)

Here is a good translation of a very nice poem by Eminescu. I might be mistaken, but I have heard that it was written before scientific discoveries were made showing how it takes thousands of years (or more) for the light of other stars to reach our own planet "That for its light to reach our view, Has needed thousand years"

I realize my post is not directly related to Cristea Zalu, I am certain that Mr. Zalu would have aproved of the main focus of my post. ;)
