  A concert was staged by Romania and China here on Thursday in the Athenaeum concert hall to celebrate 70 years of friendship and loyalty, performed by the Romanian national George Enescu Philharmonic Orchestra and conducted by Chinese musician Wang Jin.

  "On Oct. 5, 1949, Romania was the third country that established diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China," said Tu Jiang, an official with the Chinese Embassy in Romania. "Our relations developed constantly in those 70 years and this reflects a true sense of loyalty."

  Wang has collaborated with Bucharest's most prestigious orchestras in the past 25 years, said Aurelian-Octav Popa, one of the Romanian musicians. "He is a magician, a great conductor, a magnificent violinist, and a perfect model of the friendship between our countries."

  The audience was enchanted with the Butterfly Lovers violin concerto, the famous work of classical music written by Chinese composers He Zhanhao and Chen Gang, with acclaimed Romanian violinist Gabriel Croitoru.

  "The cultural collaboration between Romania and China is a model of relationship between states," said Andrei Dimitriu, general director of the George Enescu Philharmonic Orchestra.
