The Conductor and artistic director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of the University of Alicante, Mihnea Ignat has been invited to conduct one of the concerts of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Zagreb, Croatia. The concert will be held on 2nd March, at 7.30 pm in the Auditorium Vatroslav Lisinski of Zagreb for up to 1,841 spectators.
The performance is part of the season number 140 of this orchestra which is found within the oldest of the old continent, coeval with the Berlin Philharmonic, Vienna or St. Petersburg. Masters as Lorin Maazel, Zubin Mehta, Valery Gergiev, Rafael Frübeck de Burgo, and this season, Jesus Lopez Cobos, Prince of Asturias Award of Arts, have conducted this orchestra.
Ignat admits he is very excited about the invitation that he considered "an honour". The conductor of the UA Philharmonic Orchestra will travel to Zagreb one week before the concert to perform the rehearsals prior to acting, since among the pieces that are going to play out, it is worth mentioning the world premiere of Symphony No.1 S. Bradic. The repertoire is completed with pieces like the Fantasy Overture "Romeo and Juliet" by Tchaikovsky, Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini for piano and orchestra op. 43 of Rachmaninov, in which the piano solos are played by Croatian Bruno Vlahek, School of Music Reina Sofia in Madrid and the Romanian Rhapsody Op 11 No. 1 in A Major, of Enescu.
After the concert in Croatia, Mihnea Ignat will go back to Alicante to conduct the OFUA spring season, which opens on 27 March with the Educational Concert "Viaje al nuevo mundo" and will culminate in the Institutional Concert on behalf of AECC , on 29 March, in the Auditorium of the Provincial Government Building.
