Rompetrol - Main Sponsor of the George Enescu Philharmonic

Rompetrol joined as the main sponsor of the George Enescu Philharmonic – one of Romania's most representative musical institutions.

With an impressive history of over 155 years, the George Enescu Philharmonic is Romania's elite symphony orchestra, distinguished by the quality of its sound, the level of its artists, and its rich heritage. It is the first classical music orchestra established in Romania, due to which it has become the most representative musical institution in the country, playing a crucial role in shaping the national cultural landscape.

"Since 2023, the George Enescu Philharmonic has embarked on an ambitious transformation process aimed at elevating it to the highest level of competitiveness on the international music market and creating valuable musical experiences for the audience. We bring famous conductors and soloists to Bucharest, who perform on the world's great stages. We have rejuvenated the orchestra with young, highly talented artists who are also appreciated abroad. We are expanding our repertoire. We have succeeded in attracting new audiences. The best way to build this ambitious project is in collaboration with partners from the private sector. Rompetrol's involvement in supporting classical music and culture is genuine. That is why we are delighted with the partnership we have with Rompetrol and we hope it will be a lasting one," Marin Cazacu, the General Director of the George Enescu Philharmonic.

Known for its performances, the George Enescu Philharmonic has gained remarkable notoriety in the international classical music scene. With over 300 concerts organized annually both domestically and internationally, the orchestra has received global acclaim for its contributions. The Philharmonic's involvement in the George Enescu International Festival, Romania's largest cultural event, further solidifies its position as a key player on the country's musical stage.

"For 15 years, we have been supporting culture, connecting communities through music and our partnership with the George Enescu Philharmonic is a confirmation of our commitment. We are aware of the impact of culture and high-quality music in the sustainable development of society," Bauyrzhan Nugumanov, General Director Rompetrol Downstream.

Rompetrol has been a partner of the George Enescu International Festival and Competition for 15 years, and the company offers a classical music playlist in the Rompetrol Go mobile application, a classical music playlist that can be listened to for free by the application users.

Thus, Rompetrol continues to support projects which promote culture and national identity, to develop communities by fostering a taste for beauty, facilitating access to cultural activities and elite cultural products.
