Rodríguez Inciarte relevará a Rendueles en la Fundación Príncipe el 11 de abril. El Comercio

Rodríguez Inciarte will relieve Rendueles in the Foundation Prince on April 11

The economist and current vice-president of the Central Hispanic Banco Santander (BSCH), Matías Rodríguez Inciarte, will be chosen next new April 11 president of the Foundation Prince of Asturias in Jose Ramon Álvarez Rendueles's substitution, who left the cargo last March 31, after 12 years at the head of the institution.

The clear consensus that Prince exists between the patronos of the Foundation on Inciarte's figure makes think that in this meeting that will be celebrated in the hotel Reconquista of Oviedo he will be chosen by unanimity. Rodríguez Inciarte's name was proposed by the own Álvarez Rendueles who has seen in his profile that of a personality of the maximum confidence and ideoneidad to take successfully the responsibility of leading the institution.

The Prince of Asturias Foundation´s International Music School
The Prince of Asturias Foundation International Music School is the result of an ambitious project that was launched in 1990. The relocation to Oviedo of the permanent residence of the prestigious Chamber Orchestra "The Moscow Virtuosi" and six famed music professors, sparked an idea that once developed, significantly changed the region´s artistic and musical scene and help lay the foundations for quality training, not only for Asturian youths with a talent for music, but also for youths from other parts of Spain and from abroad.

Since then, the Prince of Asturias Foundation´s backing of orchestral and musical training activities has intensified, supporting numerous pedagogical initiatives, some of which have been directly designed by The Virtuosi's team of professors.

In 2005, on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the Prince of Asturias Awards and after years of collaboration, sponsoring and funding, the Foundation took on entirely the permanent management and coordination of the International Music School. Maestro Yuri Nasushkin is responsible for its artistic management.

The activities of the Prince of Asturias Foundation´s International Music School encompass the entire year by offering seminars, conferences and master classes with the participation, as guest professors, of some of the most outstanding musicians in the world, including Teresa Berganza, 1991 Prince of Asturias Award Laureate for the Arts, who gave voice lessons in Oviedo and Juanjo Guillem, teacher and first percussionist of the Spanish National Orchestra, who gave master classes at the city´s Advanced Conservatory of Music. Likewise, conferences for the School have been given by such figures as Krzysztof Penderecki, 2001 Prince of Asturias Award Laureate for the Arts; Isabel de Falla, president of the Archivo Manuel de Falla Foundation; and Yvan Nommick, doctor in Music History and Musicology by the Paris-Sorbonne University. Thus the School is committed to turning the Principality into a national and international lodestar centre in the field of musical training by bring young talents and the best music and instrument specialists to Asturias.
