National University of Music in Bucharest | History, and Background

National University of Music in Bucharest was established in June 1863.
Initially, it was a secondary education institution that included two main sections, the Institute of Vocal Music and the School of Instrumental Music, with branches in Bucharest and Iaşi, Moldavia’s former capital. The Bucharest branch replaced the Philharmonic School (Şcoala Filarmonică), which also offered lessons in acting.

The institution’s first director was composer Alexandru Flechtenmacher, under whose leadership the Conservatory gave courses in violin, solfege, Christian music choir, piano, harmony, and singing. In 1900, composer Alfons Castaldi set up the first chamber music course.

In the 1950s, under the communist regime, the Academy took the name of composer Ciprian Porumbescu and reverted to the name of Conservatory—the Ciprian Porumbescu Conservatory or Conservatorul Ciprian Porumbescu.
At the time, it was divided into two faculties: Performing Art and Composition, and Musicology, Orchestral Conducting, and Pedagogy. In 1950, the drama department was turned into a separate Theater Institute, named after playwright Ion Luca Caragiale.

It reunited with the Film Art Institute, a former branch of the Art Academy, in 1954, to form the UNATC. During this period, from 1950 to 1953, the veteran conductor George Georgescu, a close associate of Enescu who had himself studied cello at the institution a half-century before, took his sole academic post, teaching the conducting class.
In 2001, twelve years after the Romanian Revolution, the Romanian government awarded the institution the status of a National University.
