About Rusanda

​Rusanda Panfili was born 1988 in Chisinau, Moldova. She started her violin studies in Romania at the “George Enescu” music school in Bucharest, and at the age of 11 she became one of the youngest students at the Conservatory of music and art in Vienna.

In 2015, she graduated her “Master of Arts” studies with excellence at the Music University in Vienna, under the guidance of Prof. Christian Altenburger.  She won her first international competition in Italy at the age of 10 and under the guidance from her violin professor Alexander Arenkow, Rusanda earned numerous international prizes such as “R. Lipizer” in Italy, “L.Spohr” in Germany, “Fidelio” in Austria and the “Herbert von Karajan”, “Tokyo foundation” and “Yamaha” scholarships in Austria.

Panfili & Friends: Primul

“Primul”, meaning “The First”, is the result of unique musicianship between six artists from around the world who have arranged well known pieces from the classical and folk repertoire into an exciting and versatile album which stylistically crosses over from classical to flamenco, Balkan folk, Latin folk and tango nuevo.

From the “Libertango” by Piazzolla to hidden gems such as “El Diablo Suelto con Pajarillo” from Venezuela or sorrow songs from Moldova such as “Jalea Tiganului” – “Primul” offers the listener a wide range of emotions and an exciting musical journey through styles and rhythms.

The album was produced, recorded and mixed in Austria by the well-known jazz and world music engineer Werner Angerer. The high-class studio Wavegarden provided the musicians with the highest standards of equipment including a Steinway concert piano.
