  • Raisa RADU

    () (Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies, Romania)


In the paper it is shown that on July 29th, 1848, at Ramnicu Valcea, was organized a festival, for which, Anton Pann, as a local important person and as a teacher of music, composed the music for the “A Great Sound” poem by Andrei Muresanu. That song, known now as “Awake, Romanian!” is the national anthem of Romania, “bringing the enthusiasm for the country in the hearts of every citizen”, as the representative of the provisional government, D. Zaganescu wrote in his report.
