Jean-Marc Legras – FRENCH POET

J’ai découvert la musique de Marius Herea par le biais d’ une personne qui m’a fait écouter le Largo.

Cette pièce est représentative à mon avis du…

Ionut Bulimej – MUSICOLOGIST & INTERVIEWER FOR CHATTOIR EDITORIALS

  His neo-romantic language is a true revelation in this age dominated by atonalism, serialism and spectralism. It consists of reminiscences from Mozart, Chopin, Brahms, Wagner, Bruckner, going up to the late-romantic chromatic palettes implemented by Sibelius, Elgar, Debussy and Rachmaninoff.

Guy Renaud – FRENCH CANADIAN MUSICOLOGIST & FORMER JOURNALIST

 I first met Marius at a photocopy center in Montreal, about 2010. He was photocopying music, so I asked him whose music it was and he replied with his amazing smile: “My own music.

Adele Cheng – WRITER & SCIENTIST, CHINA-ROMANIA

Many say that music is a “medicine” for the soul. It surely is as long as we accept to let ourselves led by its magic. This magic is not a charm brought along by sorcery from surreal dimensions, instead is a seed of true self we need to awaken in order to become what we are supposed to be….

Elena Selezneva – RUSSIAN CONCERT PIANIST

“His music is very complex, refined and subtle. Every phrase brings novelty and there are sudden changes of mood which I never encountered before at such level. Besides, it is very demanding. It requires high technique from the pianist and also the ability to deepen into the music and reveal the messages from behind the notes. It is a…
