Album Notes
The ballet “Luceafarul” was written according to the similarly-named poem of Mihai Eminescu.

This is a magical story about how the princess Catalina fell in love with the immortal son of the Sun – a star from the sky. She called him, and in response to her call Lucheaferul assumed the similitude of an elegant youth and came to the princess. He calls her to the sky to become a star like he is. But the princess Catalina doubts and fears, and on the contrary, she invites him to become mortal and to share an earth love with her. Lucheaferul agrees. He asks his father to save him of eternity, of immortality and to be allowed to become a man and join his destiny with the princess. But his father does not agree.

Eugen Doga writes music in all kinds of genres and styles, which makes him one of the most prolific and versatile composers. He has his own easily recognizable style.
