“Unencumbered Sound”


a guide to Iancu Dumitrescu and Ana-Maria Avram

Although two of the most compelling and exciting living composers (at least in my opinion), the work of Romanian composers Iancu Dumitrescu and Ana-Maria Avram remain largely unknown and underappreciated. I have thus made this web site to provide what little info I know and promote their amazing music. Please email me with any updates, corrections, or additions.

Avram and Dumitrescu have their own website, which details their activities as composers, as members of the Hyperion Esemble and publishers of Edition Modern.





Up-to-date discographies for Dumitrescu and Avram can be found on discogs.com.


These records can be ordered through Forced Exposure in the USA. In Europe, ReR (who have co-released 6 of the Editions Modern CD's) and V2_Archief have these recordings. In Canada, Verge.
