‘Ciprian Porumbescu’ Memorial Museum

‘CIPRIAN PORUMBESCU’ MEMORIAL MUSEUM

This museum is in the same village with the family house of Ciprian Porumbescu (1853-1883), but it focuses on the composer’s career. It is hosted by a former mansion – built in the eighteenth century – and was inaugurated in 1971. Ciprian Porumbescu passed away when he was almost 30 years old, due to some health issues worsened by the detention period in Cernăuți. He is buried in the family tomb, located in the church’s yard. He left over 250 musical works for posterity.

The exhibition is displayed in six of the mansion’s rooms. Here took place in 1882 the first show of the ‘Crai Nou’ operetta, under the baton of Ciprian Porumbescu. Objects belonging to Ciprian are exposed here: his baton, piano and violoncello. Apart from photographs and newspapers showing his life and art, one of the rooms is dedicated to the movie ‘Ciprian Porumbescu’. There are displayed some of the prop objects used in the movie, directed by Gheorghe Vitanidis in 1972.
