Abu Dhabi Classics unveil first acts for unmissable new season

Abu Dhabi Classics have unveiled their first acts for an unmissable summer season.

The musical bonanza, organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, will see a host of incredible performers descend on the capital over the next few months.

And judging by the first few acts announced, it should be a season not to be missed.

The internationally renowned Camerata Salzburg Orchestra with violin virtuoso Renaud Capuçon will excite and entertain the capital’s music lovers in equal measures at Emirates Palace on October 12.

While we can also expect not one but two unforgettable performances by a world-class soloist in the shape of French harpist Xavier de Maistre.

His first performance is on December 6 at the arts and culture haven Manarat Al Saadiyaton Saadiyat Island and then the following day at the historic Bin Hamoodah Fort, Al Ain.

Now in its eighth season, Abu Dhabi Classics has firmly established itself as a leading light in the music field in the capital.

Last season set a tough act to follow, with world-renowned violinist Gidon Kremer and award-winning pianist Khatia Buniatishvili and the Kremerata Baltica Chamber Orchestra among the acts to perform unforgettable shows.

And there were also sell-out performances from the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra, Staatskapelle Dresden and South Korean pianist Seong-Jin Cho.

But organisers are hoping this coming season, which begins in September, will be bigger and better than ever, which is music to our ears.

The concerts will run from September 2018 until April 2019, and more acts will be announced soon.
