Gheorghe Zamfir, a Romanian artist, musician and virtuoso of pan flute is having a concert on Wednesday, March 6 at 8 pm, at Vatroslav Lisinski Concert Hall in Zagreb.
His passion for pan flute and for reviving the sound of this wonderful instrument determined him to revolutionize its sound, so the traditional flute with 20 tubes, became, in turn, with 22, 25, 28, then with 30 and in the end with 42 tubes, and this instrument became transcendental, being possible to be introduced in any repertoire. This invention also allowed for the flute to be introduced in all the musical styles and genres. It universally revolutionized the sound.
Finding his way of expression through a millennial tool, Zamfir succeeds to conquer the applauses of the entire planet. He is the first Romanian artist who sang in a private mesa of Pope John Paul II, in 1988. He sold over hundreds of millions of records, all over the world, and recorded over 185 albums, a record that has not been touched by any Romanian artist so far.
He has worked with many eminent world musicians and ensembles, and has participated in many projects of film music. Zamfir collaborated with French producer Yves Robert on the film The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe, whose soundtrack became a worldwide hit, and performed film music in Once Upon a Time in America, Karate Kid, Kill Bill, Ciao Cristina, Lake and others.
Tickets at a price of 120, 150, 180 and 200 HRK can be purchased at the Lisinski or online.
