Sigismund Toduţă – composer, musicologist, university professor, Romanian academician, studied at Cluj (Romania, with Marțian Negrea) and at Rome (Italy, with Casella and Pizzetti), imposed himself as a music teacher in Blaj (Alba) and created a famous music school at Gheorghe Dima Music Academy.
With a vast and diverse art portfolio, he is the first Romanian composer, who, according to George Enescu and Paul Constantinescu, reaches a true personal style in the 20th century Romanian music.
Sigismund Toduță Foundation was established in 1991 in memory of the composer and music school founder Sigismund Toduţă (1908-1991).
Located on the street bearing his name, the house in which Sigismund Toduță spent the last 30 years of his life has been turned into a Memorial House dedicated to the famous Transylvanian musician.
The Foundation endeavours to preserve and promote Sigismund Toduță’s compositional and musicological legacy, and to encourage the research of his works by offering awards and scholarships.
