The NPR subscription series at the Moscow Philharmonic Society

The Moscow Philharmonic Society has started sales for the subscription series of Season 2016/2017. Every year the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia actively collaborates with the Philharmonic Society, one of the oldest concert organizations of Russia. Year by year the Philharmonic Society has been extending its capacity, and its cooperation with the NPR has been widened, becoming more productive. The Orchestra participates in various Philharmonic projects and also arranges its own subscription series under the auspices of the Moscow Philharmonic Society, which is a measure of prestige and high reputation for any creative entity. In Season 2016/2017 the NPR will have two subscription series at the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall (Nos. 17-18) and a third one, following the already established tradition, at the Rachmaninoff Concert Hall ("Philharmonia-2») (No. 98). One of the subscription series (No. 18) will feature matinee concerts for family visits with programs aimed at a wider audience. Among the participants of the concerts one will find the NPR's Artistic Director and Principal Conductor Vladimir Spivakov, the NPR's Permanent Guest Conductor Ken-David Masur, prize winners of the Tchaikovsky International Competition violinist Sergey Dogadin and pianist Daniil Kharitonov, young conductors, rapidly gaining popularity and professional credibility, Stanislav Kochanovsky, Konstantin Khvatynets, Alexander Soloviev, Dimitris Botinis, Gabriel Bebeșelea and others. Dimitris Botinis and Gabriel Bebeșelea will perform with the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia for the first time.

The 28-year-old conductor Gabriel Bebeșelea is a new name for the Russian capital. A pride of Romania and a new star on the European conductor's podium, Gabriel got his musical education in his country, and then continued his studies at the Vienna University of Music and Performing Arts. In 2010, he became the winner of the Jeunesses Musicales Competition, in Season 2013/2014 he was named the best conductor of Romania, and in 2015 he was chosen by Bernard Haitink to participate in his master classes at the Lucerne Festival.

The National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia is also involved each year in concert cycles of the Philharmonic Society, such as the popular subscriptions series "Great Piano Concertos» (No.33) and "Masterpieces of Symphonic Music» (No. 72).
