Notes & Reviews:

Anatol Vieru's sixth symphony, Exodus, arose in a period of downfall and decline, just before the collapse of the regime associated with the name of the dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. It was composed between 1988 and 1989 and is influenced by the atmosphere of that era. The more Vieru caught himself worrying, the more obvious it became to him that an exodus was taking place around him. In his music, Vieru abandons the familiar stance of symphonic writing, in which a multiplicity of instrumental aprts are combined into a unified gesture, in favor of a simultaneity of contradictions.

Anatol Vieru's Symphony No. 6 "Exodus" arose in a period of downfall and decline, just before the collapse of the regime associated with the name of the director Nicolae Ceausescu. "It was composed between 1988 and 1989 and is influenced by the atmosphere of that era. The more I worried, the more obvious it seemed to me that an exodus was taking place around me, a mental exodus for some, a real, physical exodus for tohers. To me, the image of exodus seems to be the emblem of this turbulent cnetury." - Anatol Vieru
