Iancu Dumitrescu is one of the leading personalities of contemporary music, embracing both composition and interpretation. He studied with Sergiu Celibidache musical phenomenology and conducting. His compositions are based on ultra-spectralism and acousmatics from a phenomenological point of view (Edmund Husserl), in which sound is subject to analysis and dissociation, confering a genuine force of suggestion and penetration.
