Ioan Harea

Romanian/Canadian violinist, Ioan Harea has been a prominent presence on the Canadian music scene since moving to Ottawa from Venezuela in 1986.

A brilliant and versatile violinist, Ioan Harea has performed as soloist and as a chamber musician in Canada, the United States, Venezuela, Italy, France, Romania and Spain.

With "CLASSIC GYPSY" Ioan Harea transforms the folk music of Europe and South America into a new genre of virtuoso violin playing, elevating music of the campfire and dance hall to the symphonic stage.
Combined with well-loved classical favourites such as works by Paganini, Fritz Kreisler, Sarasate, Gershwin and Mozart (to name only a few) "CLASSIC GYPSY" is an entertaining, high-energy classical performance, which appeals to all audiences. Standing ovations are inevitable after a performance of "CLASSIC GYPSY".
