Tiberiu Soare (born in 1977) is the most acclaimed conductors of the contemporary young generation of Romanian musicians. He brings on the stage of George Enescu Festival (on September 26, 2013), along with the Orchestra and Choir of the Bucharest National Opera an interesting assembly of the famous Oedipe, composed by George Enescu.
A brilliant charismatic and open-minded musician who loves equally the classical music and Pink Floyd, Tiberiu Soare is the principal conductor of The National Radio Orchestra (from 2012). He was the conductor of Bucharest National Opera (until 2013) and the coordinator of The Ballet and Opera Experimental Studio “Ludovic Spiess”. In 2003 he won the Music Critics Award for the “Traviata – 150 years”.
He is involved in several original projects. In 2012 (Caragiale’s Year) he conducted the opera-cabaret A Lost Letter, by Dan Dediu. The musical premiere was an innovative composition which finds a musical equivalent for each Caragialesque irony and humor. I think that the Caragiale’s spirit is defining for what happens today in our society, said the conductor.

The Romanian premiere of Enescu’s works took place on September 22, 1958, at the very first edition of Enescu Festival. George Enescu composed Oedipe between 1921 and 1931 at his mansion from Tescani, in the middle of the forest. The work is dedicated to his great love, Maria Tescanu Rosetti, also known as Maruca.
In 2013 Enescu Festival edition, Tiberiu Soare will hold a workshop dedicated to 21st century music on September 8, at the Romanian Athenaeum.
The conductor spoke about lack of barriers in music: Someone can listen Parazitii (romanian hip hop group) and love, in the same way, Mozart and Handel. There are no borders in music. For example, Mozart did not know that was writing classical music.
