The National Radio Orchestra will be performing pieces by W. A. Mozart under the baton of Julien Salemkour, former conductor at the Berlin State Opera, tomorrow November 8 as of 7 p.m. at the Bucharest Radio Hall, Mediafax informs.
During the first half of the evening, the orchestra will be playing arias of Idomeneo, first performed in Munich under the baton of its 25-year-old composer. The story taking place in ancient Crete, shortly after the Trojan War, will be “related” by two special guests, Narine Yeghian, a soprano of Armenian descent, currently soloist with the Berlin State Opera and tenor Johannes Chum who has performed in Paris, Milan, London, Vienna, Berlin, New York. The two artists will be performing alongside the Academic Radio Choir under the baton of Dan Mihai Goia.
Also performed will be “Symphony No. 41 in D Major”, nicknamed the Jupiter Symphony, the last symphony composed by Mozart, and also the longest, one of the most appreciated scores of such kind in the world. When asked about his opinion about Mozart’s symphony, another great composer Robert Schumann said: “There are things in the world about which nothing can be said, as Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony, much of Shakespeare and pages of Beethoven.”
Tickets for the concert to be held on Friday are available online at, in the offices of the Romanian Post, in the Inmedio stores bearing the sign, the Germanos stores and at the box office of the Radio Hall.
