ABU DHABI CLASSICS
Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority launches new Abu Dhabi Classics programme
Oct 2014 – May 2015
The New 2014/2015 Season: Travelling through Music
Keeping the tradition, that was translated during the last five years, Abu Dhabi Classics returns, bringing some of the most prominent musical talent and orchestras to the emirate. Abu Dhabi Classics is a concert season reflecting the excellence that the emirate has achieved in the field of culture.
The 2014-2015 season is dedicated to the figure of the traveller, offering a wide range of musical explorations. Featuring prestigious ensembles such as the world leading Staatskapelle Dresden conducted by their star conductor Christian Thielemann or the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, as well as renowned artists such as Grammy Award Winner Jordi Savall, exceptional young concert pianists Khatia Buniatishvili and David Fray, Oud virtuoso Nasser Shamma and the acclaimed Emirati Oud Master Faisal Al Saari, alongside today’s leading violinists Gidon Kremer and James Ehnes, this season will highlight the finest classical music from East and West.
Abu Dhabi Classics will also host, for its October 14th opening, the young French prodigy Lydie Solomon with a piano recital dedicated to Chopin’s travels and will include the mesmerising Gidon Kremer with his Kremerata Baltica Orchestra on 28 October, the Orchestra from the Scala Academy in Milan for one symphonic concert conducted by Mikhail Tatarnikov and an Italian Opera evening conducted by Giuseppe Finzi on 28 and 29 April 2015, as well as the artists in residence programme.
A stunning season finale will take place in May 2015 during which the newly created TCA Abu Dhabi Classics Music Awards will be given for the first time to leading international talent!
The events will take place in different venues: Emirates Palace Auditorium, Manarat Al Saadiyat Auditorium, Abu Dhabi Theatre, Al Jahili Fort and some important historic sites in Al Ain.
*All timings are actual start timings. We recommend guests to come 30 min before the beginning of the concert to find their seats. Doors will close at the start time. No access will be granted after the doors have been shut.
