Sting thrills Romania with Elizabethan music

BUCHAREST, Romania (AP)

Sting thrilled a Romanian audience of 4,000 with his renditions on the lute of Elizabethan music interspersed with classics from his Police days such as "Roxanne."

The British musician teamed up with Bosnian musician Edin Karamazov to give a 75-minute concert Tuesday night, performing melodies from "Songs from the Labyrinth," a tribute to Elizabethan composer John Dowland.

Sporting a full beard, Sting gave a concert described as "divine and relaxing" by Romanian news agency Agerpres.

Senate chairman Mircea Geoana praised the "refined" concert and called Sting "a great musician."
