'Maria T' is a celebration of the immortal genius of Maria Tănase , (1913-1963), the diva of Romanian folklore. Taking Tănase's songs as a starting point, Balanescu has created new compositions with a very personal language. The perfomance features striking visuals by Austrian video artist Klaus Obermaier presenting archive footage of Maria Tănase, with the live quartet seamlessly incorporated into the visual experience.
