Conductor Ioan Holender to launch autobiography

The conductor who can boast the longest term at the helm of the Viennese Opera, Ioan Holender, currently an advisor to the Operas in New York, Tokyo and Buda­pest, will launch on November 15, in Bucharest, his autobiography, “De la Timisoara la Viena” (From Timisoara to Vienna).

The editorial event, accompanied by the launch of “Opera eterna”, signed by musical critic Costin Popa, marks the opening of the second edition of the VIP Awards’ Gala for Musical Performance Arts, taking place at the Bucharest National Opera. No less than 20 awards will celebrate the finest voices of Romanian opera and other major cultural personalities. Sopranos Felicia Filip and Irina Iordachescu, alongside tenors Marius Manea and Vlad Mirita, will sing famous arias from operas and operettas composed by Verdi, Massenet, Gounod and Lehar, accompanied by the Bucharest National Opera Orchestra, under the baton of conductor Iurie Florea. The evening will be opened by the famous Overture to the opera “Carmen” by Bizet. The host of the gala will be actress Maia Morgenstern. The gala is also meant as a charity event. Thus, the proceeds will be used to assist talented children coming from underprivileged backgrounds.
