The third one is archetypicality stemming from the studies and meditation over the works of Brâncuși, which means searching for elementary, primary structures and music based on universal rules that are recognizable everywhere and forever. In this context it is important to mention that Georgescu was inspired by works of the Romanian painter Ion Țuculescu, who combined abstract expressionism with references to folk art. Significantly, escaping the standardized academic avant-garde [serialism, aleatorism]. Georgescu followed the example of visual artists. Analogically, the Polish composer Zygmunt Kreuze [a representative of the same generation] in his works referred to Wladyslaw Strzeminski's concepts of unism. Piet Mondrian was equally crucial to Georgescu, who dedicated the whole cycle of compositions for string quartet and electronics to the painter. Not to mention the Polish avant-garde which was very important to the generation Nemescu and Georgescu belonged to. All this results in highly original and fascinating music sometimes described as Romanian minimalism. Similarly to Brâncuși's pieces, is sophisticated and elementary at the same time. It gives an impression of the eternal flow, even though it is finished and closed. And it is possible to characterize it by such paradoxical juxtapositions as the above. Georgescu himself used similar words to speak about Brâncuși, especially of his Endless Column. It is worth seeing and hearing all that in the context of - fundamental for the composer himself - sublimity, but it is also crucial to emphasize that Georgescu's music is a truly original phenomenon.
