The concert wanted to be an argument for Europe and its common values, 
starting from the cultural ones. The program incorporated reference 
works from the Romanian repertoire (composers George Enescu and Bela 
Bartók), European repertoire (composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart), as well as a musical premiere for the Netherlands, the composition signed by 
Vlad Maistorovici, ”Transilvan Concert”, a spectacular rhapsody on 
Romanian themes and a tribute to the Romanian medieval melodies.

At the opening of the event, the Romanian Ambassador, H.E. Ms. Brândușa Predescu addressed a strong pro-European message, starting from the acronym of the YES Camerata, evoking the significance that Romania attributes to the country’s belonging to the European family, and underlined that in the motto of the Romanian Presidency of the EU Council, “Cohesion, a common European value”, the major principles of the Romanian diplomacy are found.
