EMYA

The award was inaugurated in 1973 by the Council of Europe. The candidates are new museums or museums after radical reorganization or extension. The main goal was to discover and promote new ideas in European museums.

In 1996, EMYA was awarded for the first time to an East European museum, the Romanian Peasant Museum from Bucharest. His Majesty Queen Fabiola handed the EMYA trophy, The Egg by Henry Moore to the director Horia Bernea. In his speech, the EMYA president, Kenneth Hudson, said:

“My colleagues and myself are convinced that the Big Prize of this year must be given to the Romanian Peasant Museum from Bucharest. The wonderfull collections of objects are presented and interpreted with exceptional imagination and skill, in an original style with great impact on the visitor. The director of the museum is loved and respected by his colleagues and his artistic formation has helped him build a museum that goes beyond the traditional level of display and creates a whole more important then the sum of parts. Horia Bernea is an exceptional man and we are sure that the European museum world will hear much more of him in the future. He, as well as the museum, is destined to have an international influence.”

Instrumente neobișnuite din Transilvania
Unusual Instruments from Transylvania


Discul se consacră muzicilor ţărăneşti din câteva regiuni limitrofe ale Transilvaniei: Bihor (la apus), Oaș (la miazănoapte) și Valea Bicazului (la răsărit). Aceste muzici frapează prin culorile lor sonore distincte, obţinute cu ajutorul unor instrumente neobişnuite sau preparate într-un mod unic. La începutul secolului XX, muzicienii din Bihor au inventat vioara cu goarnă (higheghea cu tolcer), instrument cu un timbru nazal mai penetrant decât vioara obișnuită. În Oaș, violoniștii (ceterașii) se străduiesc de multe decenii să-și prepare instrumentul astfel încât acesta să sune cât mai înalt și sfredelitor. În fine, muzicienii de pe Valea Bicazului își acompaniază melodiile de petrecere cu un instrument masiv de coarde și percuție totodată: doba. Discul oferă ascultătorului o muzică românească variată și spectaculoasă, pe care altfel are prea puține șanse să o audă.
