Bio

Sabina Ulubeanu is one of the most complex artistic personalities of her generation, as her work comprises composition, photography, musicology, teaching, experimental performance and directing a young international new arts festival.

She was born in Bucharest, 3.08.1979. Studied piano at the George Enescu Music Highschool and then Composition at the National Music University of Bucharest, with Tiberiu Olah and Doina Rotaru (Master in 2004). In 2001/2002 she studied composition with Violeta Dinescu at the Oldenburg University in Germany and in 2011 completed her PhD studies Summa cum Laudae with the thesis „The Function of Memory in the Construction of Musical Time”, a theme that represents the artistic manifesto of the composer. 

Sabina is a member of the Romanian Composers Union.

Her compositions, chamber music, multimedia or symphonic, are being performed in Romania and abroad (France, Germany, US, Lithuania, Italy, Belgium, Austria, Ukraine, Ireland, Croatia, Estonia, etc) by artists like Arcadia Quartet, Alexandru Tomescu, Laura Buruiana, Matei Varga, Green Thing Ensemble, Ana Topalovic, Barbara Lueneburg, Sonomania Ensemble, Ensemble for New Music Tallin, Peterson Quartet, etc  and received national and international prizes. About her music, the composer confesses:

"To write music is for me a necessity, a must. I need to express my emotions. So, my music is first of all intimate and subjective, my vision of the world that I perceive in every moment. The Technique should always be just a mean of transforming the Feeling into Ideas and the Ideas into a Musical Matter that others could understand."

Sabina  is interested in bringing together space, time and memory, elements that unify the music and the visual arts. Her recent works combine the two arts, adding to the music strong visual support, in exhibitions built around her photographs, multimedia works or writing music for silent films.

Currently, Sabina Ulubeanu is artistic director and founder of  InnerSound New Arts Festival Bucharest, the only Romanian platform dedicated to talented young musicians and artists form all  disciplines. Sabina  implemented an unique concept, the Silent Film Night,  with new film and musical productions made especially for the Festival by young professionals in both arts. Among the artists present at the festival are Arcadia Quartet, Stephanie Pan, Ad Libitum Quartet, Alexandru Tomescu, Ana Topalovic, Laura Buruiana, Vlad Maistorovici, Matei Ioachimescu, Barbara Lueneburg, Henry Vega, Contempo Quartet etc.

In September 2013, Sabina Ulubeanu became the musical reviewer and partner of the George Enescu International Festival’s website, her reviews being published in ‘Festival Newspaper’ (an Adevarul supplement), the Liternet website, the musicology magazine ‘Muzica’ etc. 

She is also a speaker in various events, such as TEDx (Cambridge School Of Bucharest-2015), Aspen Ideas Sibiu (2016), PR Beta Timisoara (2017), mastering the Music Bussines Bucharest (2017)  Pecha Kucha Bucharest 2012 etc.

Between 2003-2009 Sabina was an Adjunct Professor at the National Music University Bucharest  and Spiru Haret University ( Harmony, Analysis and Form, Score Reading, Music Theory  and Music History)

In her  art photography, Sabina approaches strange, intimate spaces, building warm connections with human subjects and reflecting her own feelings on reality. She also photographed musicians  from Vienna  and musicians from Romania, composers  and performers, athletes  and other personalities. Her images  were exhibited in Bucharest, Lisbon, Berlin, Vienna and Haga, are part of private collections world wide  and participated in important festivals (Eyes On - Vienna, Photo Salon- Bucharest, etc.)


Last, but never least,  Sabina is the proud mother of two wonderful children, aged 16 and 11, who are her everyday joy and profound  inspiration.
