The “Ciprian Porumbescu” Memorial Museum, a public forum monument of national importance located in Ciprian Porumbescu village, 30 km away from Suceava, organized in the former mansion of the boyar Dimitrie Costin (the 18th-century building), inaugurated in 1971.
The museum houses a vast exhibition of original pieces (piano, cello, bandmaster’s baton, violin case, votive album offered by Ciprian to his girlfriend Berta Gorgon, etc.) related to the life and work of composer Ciprian Porumbescu (1853–1883), the founder of modern Romanian music. The composer has Polish ancestry, being born Gołęmbiowski. His father, the Orthodox priest and writer Iraclie, changed his name to Porumbescu (in Polish and Romanian, it means the same thing, gołąb = pigeon).
Visitors can admire the 19th-century pieces of furniture, photographs, prints, posters, numismatic or philatelic items related to the life of the well-known composer in Romania, who left us, among others, the following representative piano creations: “Ballad for violin and piano”, “The Romanian Rhapsody”, the “Song of the Tricolour” (former anthem of Romania during the Ceausescu regime), “On our flag is written Union” (on this song is still sung today the national anthem of Albania), the operetta “Crai Nou.”
