Tiberiu Soare, first conductor of the National Radio Orchestra, is the leader of the young generation of Romanian conductors and is well appreciated both by the public and specialists for the elegance and flexibility of his musical view shown in concerts and opera performances in Romania and abroad.

Also connected to the world of radio orchestras, pianist Jan Simon has a special profile in the symphonic ensemble of the Czech broadcasting stations, where he is both a well-appreciated soloist and art director of the orchestra.

Together with Jan Simon, conductor Ondrej LÚnard will come to Bucharest; he has been the conductor of the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra since 2011 and is acknowledged in the Czech Republic for the professionalism, originality and spontaneity of his musical performances.
