This sea­son’s Abu Dhabi Clas­sics line-up has been an­nounced

Abu Dhabi Clas­sics is back, and it’ll show­case mu­si­cal tal­ents from all over the world for its eighth year, with events tak­ing place at Emi­rates Palace, Ma­narat Al Saadiyat and in Al Ain.

The 2018/19 Abu Dhabi Clas­sics sea­son kicks off on Oc­to­ber 12 and runs into next May, and the line-up in­cludes a de­but per­for­mance in the UAE by the Cam­er­ata Salzburg Orches­tra. Join­ing the Aus­trian stars on stage will be French clas­si­cal vi­o­lin­ist Re­naud Ca­puçon. This will be the first time they have ap­peared in Abu Dhabi and they will per­form Mozart’s Vi­o­lin Con­cer­tos 4 and 5.

French harpist Xavier de Maistre will also make his UAE de­but on De­cem­ber 6 at Ma­narat Al Saadiyat on Saadiyat Is­land and De­cem­ber 7 at Bin Hamoodah Fort, Al Ain.

Maistre’s first Harp recital, Span­ish Nights, will in­clude works from leg­endary Span­ish pi­anists and com­posers Isaac Al­béniz, En­rique Grana­dos and Manuel de Falla. For his sec­ond per­for­mance, Maistre will per­form works in­spired by Span­ish clas­si­cal mu­sic and French com­poser Claude De­bussy.

Last year’s event fea­tured per­for­mances from Alia Al Neyadi, the first Emi­rati bal­le­rina, and South Korean pi­anist Seong-Jin Cho.
