Tiberiu Soare Will Conduct 'Thus Spoke Zarathustra' at the Radio Hall, in a Richard Strauss Anniversary Concert

Monday, 17 March 2014 , ora 8.16
It is unlikely that there is anyone who has seen the famous film of director Stanley Kubrick 2001: Space Odyssey and has not been amazed by the novel soundtrack match between the Blue Danube Waltz by Johann Strauss II and Thus Spoke Zarathustra, the symphony poem by Richard Strauss.

On Richard Strauss' 150th anniversary, in the year dedicated to him, the Romanian Radio National Orchestra invites you to attend on Friday, March 21st, at 19:00, the Radio Hall concert where you will be able to listen to a spectacular and distinct music score of the celebrated German artist, Thus Spoke Zarathustra. The symphony poem is inspired from the philosophical novel with the same name by Friedrich Nietzsche, which deals with divinity controversy in a new way for that era, also containing the well-known parable 'the death of God'.

As he has been highly acclaimed by the audience of the Sophia Philharmonic Orchestra for conducting this composition on February 20th, it is now the Romanian audience's turn to appreciate the musical directing of Tiberiu Soare, the main conductor of the Romanian Radio Orchestras and Choirs.

During the evening's programme you will also be able to listen to Le Carnaval Romain overture by Hector Berlioz, French Romantic composer, and Piano Concerto No.1 in E flat by Liszt, performed for the first time in Weimar in 1855, with the composer himself as a soloist and Hector Berlioz as a conductor!

At the Radio Hall, the soloist whom you will applaud will be the much awarded Răzvan Dragnea. He has been bestowed with many prizes at national and international contests such as: China Shenzehn 2006, George Enescu (Bucharest) 2003, Porto 2002, Mozart (Paris) 1994, Unisa (South Africa) semi-finalist, 2000, the Brașov International Contests (1992, 1995), Carl Filtsch (Sibiu) 2002, Lory Wallfisch (Ploiești) 2003, Jeunesses Musicales 1993, Dinu Lipatti 1997, Chopin (Bucharest) 1999 and others.

His studies were completed at two higher education establishments, in Bucharest and Berlin: he graduated from the National University of Music, Bucharest, followed by master courses at the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin. In 2012 he received his Pd.D. title at the National University of Music in Bucharest.

He has performed in many concert tours in South Africa, Japan, South Korea, Hungary, Germany, France, Italy and Portugal.

Răzvan Dragnea has performed in many concerts together with the Bucharest National Radio Orchestra, the 'George Enescu' Philharmonic, the 'Banatul' Philharmonic in imișoara, the Cluj-Napoca 'Transylvania' Philharmonic, the Iași 'Moldavia' Philharmonic, as well as the philharmonic orchestras in Brașov, Sibiu, Craiova, Arad, Ploiești, Satu-Mare and Botoșani.
