In 2014, the Union of National Opera Houses of Romania awarded him the Best Conductor Prize. Having received an excellent education in Bucharest, Vienna and Amsterdam (as an intern at the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra), Gabriel won the Jeunesses Musicales Contest in Bucharest and the Lovro von Matačić Competition in Zagreb, and was acclaimed at the Donatella Flick Competition in London and the Gustav Mahler Competition in Bamberg. He is currently the principal conductor of the National Romanian Opera in Cluj-Napoca and the famous Transylvania State Philharmonic Orchestra. Bebeșelea first conducted the NPR in the spring of 2017, and it was a vivid and memorable debut, which was attended by Mr Vasile Soare, the Romanian Ambassador to the Russian Federation. The concert ended with a well-deserved ovation. This season, Gabriel Bebeșelea will present two diverse programs to the Moscow public, which will show different facets of the conductor's interpretative skills.
