Omani music enthusiasts have a rendezvous today with one of Europe's leading orchestras, the Orchestra Philharmonique de Monte Carlo tonight.
To be conducted by Lawrence Foster with Cello Soloist Mischa Maisky, the programme's highlight includes Dvorak's Concerto for Cello and Orchestra and Stravinsky's Firebird Suite.
The Orchestra Philharmonique de Monte Carlo has always embraced both tradition and modernity, and has contributed significantly to the creation and performance of contemporary opera, dance and symphonic works. The audience will be able to live, listen and go through the experience.
Leading the orchestra is Lawrence Foster, Music Director of Orchestre et Opéra National de Montpellier and Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the Gulbenkian Orchestra.
Born in 1941 in Los Angeles to Romanian parents, Foster has been a major champion of the music of Georg Enescu, serving as Artistic Director of the Georg Enescu Festival from 1998 to 2001. His latest Enescu recording his own orchestration of the String Octet with Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte Carlo for EMI was released in
Soloist Mischa Maisky will join Foster and the orchestra for the night. Maisky has the distinction of being the only cellist in the world to have studied under both Mstislav Rostropovich and Gregor Piatigorsky. Maisky, nicknamed as 'Rostropovich of the Future' in 1962, was also a prize winner at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 1963.
Christina Scheppelmann, CEO of the Royal Opera House Muscat, commented: "Once again the programme of the Royal Opera House Muscat strengthens our message of blending cultures, the mix between tradition and the modernity. We wish our audience an enchanted night with the Orchestra Philharmonique de Monte Carlo."
