An anon added an immense amount of info to this article (tracerouted through a Romanian router, so possibly a translation?)
So I'm giving it a bunch of copy-edits. But English sources are hard to find, so I'm archiving some of the removed statements here that either need a citation or some context around it.
- He was imprisoned by the Austrian authorities because of his political activities, and composed his major works while in confinement.
- He studied in the Philosophical Faculties of the Cernauti and Vienna Universities.
- Despite his early affirmation, with numerous songs taken by the ambulant liric-bands at the end of 19th century, the major weight in the catalog of his creation is represented by the chamber instrumental music, unfortunately lost in an unjust anonimate.
- (comparisons were even made with Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsodies). A source to this claim may also cite the Strauss comparisons
- The characters have the ability to let music develop freely, in order to express what is essential in the work: the brightness and ardour of their feelings. Porumbescu expressed them with an inspired combination of local melody and rhythm - whilst on its opening night, in Brasov in 1882, with a huge one. In reference to New Moon
I'll add more as I come across them. I don't actually know much about this composer, so instead I'm hoping to conform the thing to the manual of style and all the relevant guidelines (like, *cough*, avoid peacock terms) Xavexgoem (talk) 12:12, 20 April 2008 (UTC)
Gołęmbiowski = Golembiovski
I've change "Gołęmbiowski" to "Golembiovski" since the first form is made-up according to the modern rules of the Polish language. The sources only speak of "Golumbiovski". Moreover, never to they speak of "Cyprian", only of Ciprian - this is simply overkill on part of the smart-ass who added the supposedly original Polish name... 188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:26, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Cause of death
According to this - admittedly unreliable - source, which I can moreover only read through Google Translate, Porumbescu died of tuberculosis contracted in Austro-Hungarian detention: http://ask.famouswhy.ro/Stie-cineva-de-ce-a-murit-Ciprian-Porumbescu_q2548.html. Could anyone, possibly someone proficient in Romanian, find out whether this is true?
