Iași "Moldova" Philharmonic Orchestra

The Moldova Philharmonic Orchestra (Romanian Philharmonie moldave) in Iaşi, is an orchestra well known in Romania and around the world. The name "Moldova" in the title refers to the historical region of Moldavia.


During the 18 and 19th century, Iaşi, as the main city and capital of the former Principality of Moldavia, had been closely connected to European musical life, and great European musicians used to play in the city.

In 1860, Conservatory of music and dramatic art was founded. After an unsuccessful attempt in 1868, the Philharmonic Society was finally founded in Iaşi, in 1918.

Moldova State Philharmonic, as an institution with permanent artistic activity, held its inaugural concert on October 9, 1942, conducted by George Enescu.[1]
