THE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Beethoven 7th at the Bucharest Atheneum

The Symphony Orchestra of the Foundation is the largest ensemble, drawn from an artistic team of over 110 musicians, selected through national auditions. For its debut in April 2012, at the Atheneum Hall in Bucharest, under the “London Bucharest Festival Orchestra” name, the ensemble collaborated with principal musicians from the London Symphony and the BBC Symphony orchestras , as well as with leaders from the Suisse Romande and the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich, in the Beethoven 7th Symphony, under the baton of Christian Badea. In addition to the foreign guests and the young musicians studying or playing in the country, the Orchestra has attracted the collaboration of young Romanian musicians who study or work abroad, as well as that of their older, internationally famous and well established Romanian colleagues.
