We are glad to announce that Ruxandra Donose’s recital will be live-streamed online at 19.15 at the following address:

Highly-praised for the complexity of her artistic personality, Ruxandra Donose is one of the most renowned mezzo-sopranos of the younger generation. Born in Bucharest, in a family of musicians, Ruxandra Donose appeared on the concert stage as early as her childhood, as a pianist. A graduate of the Music University of Bucharest (the class of Georgeta Stoleriu), she also studied in Vienna with Carol Blaickner-Mayo. She has been awarded a great number of national and international prizes being among others, laureate of the International Competition of Munich (1990) and of Washington (1991).

Soloist of the Opera Houses of Constanta (1989-1991), Basel (1991-1992) and Vienna (1992-1998), Ruxandra Donose has carried on at the same time a very rich concert activity throughout the world, acquiring an impressive artistic record. In November and December this year, she plays Carmen by G. Bizet at The Coliseum with the prestigious English National Opera. 

Pianist Sergiu Tuhutziu will accompany Ruxandra Donose. Born in 1983 in Romania, Tuhutziu studied at the National University of Music in Bucharest, the class of Steluta Radu, and received Master's degrees from the Music Universities in Stuttgart and Cluj-Napoca, Romania. In 2011, receiving a bursary for London Masterclasses, he moved to London and had the great opportunity to work with Prof. Norma Fisher. He is now studying the ”Artist Diploma” post-graduate programme at Royal College of Music in London. He has given recitals on the main stages in Romania, but also in Russia, Austria, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Canada and the UK.
