Award-winning cellist to appear with MPO
The truly impeccable Armenian cellist Narek Hakhnazaryan, who causes a sensation wherever he goes, is to reappear in Malta. He will grace the stage of Teatru Manoel during the Dvorak & Elgar concert on 11 November, under the direction of the highly acclaimed Greek conductor, Michalis Economou.
Hakhnazaryan will perform as soloist during the first number on the programme that evening − Antonin Dvorak’s Cello Concerto in B minor. This is one of the most frequently played of all cello concertos and is especially known for its rich orchestral music and melodic passages of the solo instrument.
Maestro Economou’s Di-chon will follow. It is a symphonic work based on the Montagues and Capulets story of Romeo and Juliet, and has been rearranged expressly for this concert.
The evening will close with Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations, a series of 14 short musical portraits, the subject of which are friends and family of the composer. Many will be familiar with Nimrod, one of the variations that produce goosebumps in the listener.
The concert starts at 8pm, following a pre-concert talk at 7.30pm. Tickets are being sold from €10 to €30.
