The Paul Constantinescu Memorial Museum

The Paul Constantinescu Memorial Museum presents a number of original documents about the life and work of the famous musician, grouped into seven sections: symphonic music, opera music, vocal - symphonic, chamber music, choral, for voice and piano and film music. Among the exhibits of tremendous importance, there is an exceptional piece of patrimony - the oldest piano in Southeastern Europe and one of the first in Central Europe, built by the F. Kaeferlie company in Stuttgart.

 

The Paul Constantinescu Memorial Museum in Ploiești, department of the Prahova County Museum of History and Archaeology, is based in the building in which the composer lived, which was donated to the Prahova County Museum of History and Archaeology in 1993 by his sister-in-law, chemical engineer Eleonora Constantinescu.

 

The permanent exhibition includes novel documents about the life and work of the illustrious musician: handwritten scores or printed ones, programs and concert posters that illustrate the impact of his creations on the musical life in Romania and abroad, drawings and caricatures signed by the composer with real artistic value and documents regarding his prodigious didactic activity. 

 

Every year, here is organized the National Contest of  Interpretation and Musical Creation.
