Romanian conductor Ion Marin will receive, on October 14 in Berlin, the Echo award for the record sales that the “Legacy” album that Marin produced along with violinist David Garrett and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra registered, the artist’s press bureau informs, being quoted by Mediafax. The “Legacy” album was released by the Decca record label, a Universal Music division, and registered over 200,000 sales in Germany. The album won a double golden record in Great Britain for registering over 300,000 sales. Ion Marin, the son of well-known conductor of the “Madrigal” chorus Marin Constantin, graduated the Bucharest Conservatory in 1983 and is currently one of the most appreciated young conductors. The first important position Marin held was that of resident conductor at the Vienna Staatsoper from 1986 to 1991, the period in which the institution was led by Claudio Abbado. He also worked with the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Hamburgische Staatsoper, Dresden Semperoper, Opernhaus Zurich, Paris Bastille, Teatro alla Scala, La Fenice and the Metropolitan Opera.
