Curtea Veche nr. 43 were a Romanian musical band who were active in the mid-1970s.

They formed in 1974 as a trio: Sorin Chifiriuc (guitar), Traian Sasu (drums) and Nicușor Curta (bass).[1] Except for Florin Ochescu, who was a student at the Bucharest Polytechnics Institute, the other three members were students at the Bucharest Music Academy. Later, Curta was replaced by Florin Iordănescu, and Florin Ochescu joined as a guitarist. During the years several member changes took place, the band collaborating also with Mircea Florian, who contributed both music and lyrics.

The band recorded some songs at the state-owned radio studio, and appeared sporadically also on television, for example on Club T.
