There are a number of world famous conductors in the world, very few of those are however women. Inma Shara is seen as spains best coonductor. She conducted every world renowned orchestra in the world from the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Russian National Symphony, New York Philharmonic, Israel Philharmonic, Bayerische Staatsoper in Germany to the Philharmonic Orchestra Graz in Austria, and many more. She always does this in her own exuberant but also strong way of conducting. Inma Shara must be rated as a top conductor and the best female conductor in the world by any measure.
After finishing the conservatory in her native Bilbao she went on to graduate with honours from the Real Conservatorio Superior de Música in Madrid, she graduated with top honours. Directly following this study she started following master classes in conducting with the great conductors Sir Colin Davis and Alexander Rahbari. Inma Shara studied with the best in the world. Because of her outstanding talent she was rewarded. She also spent time studying in New York City, where she mastered in the techniques of the great master conductors of the twentieth century: Toscanini, von Karajan and Bernstein. She of course also conducted the New York Philharmonic to top it all off.
Conducting a classical orchestra must rate as one of the toughest management jobs out there. Not only is a conductor a manager while being at the same time: an artist, an annalist and a performer. A conductor is a leader whom must successfully convey his vision and interpretation to the orchestra in front of her (or him). There must be total quality control, and the only person that can deliver this is the conductor. Inma Shara has broken the glass ceiling in this very demanding profession.
Inma Shara works extensively in her native Basque country, working closely with its government in the area of culture. She did this together with Zubin Mehta. Perhaps lesser known to the public but very exciting is Inma Shara’s involvement and passion for film music, working with great names like Jonathan Séeller from Harvard University and Anton Coppola. John Williams has proven how exciting and yet also classically authentic strong film music can be. That Inma works in this dynamic field says something about her fiery interpretation.
