On the lessons with Mihail Jora described in a letter to Miron Șoarec (December 24,1932)

I focus now on instrumentation; I read treatises brought for me from Paris and I try to get acquainted with the instruments – with their secrets, with their mechanisms… I would feel so happy if I could write, even this year, a concerto for piano and orchestra! For the time being, should inspiration be on my side, I will work on a suite for small orchestra. This will help me acquire some skill and prepare to strike out on composing for grand orchestra.
