Things to do in Abu Dhabi: See the Russian National Orchestra at the Cultural Foundation

While we'd be lying if we said classic music was out go-to of genre, but that doesn't mean we can't appreciate it.

The experience of watching an orchestra, the booming sound, watching the harmony between a huge group of people who work together to produce beauty is inarguably profound.

Abu Dhabi Classics is back and there are some fantastic performances coming our way.

Taking to the stage on October 10 and 11, The Russian national orchestra will be performing for music fans in Abu Dhabi at the Cultural Foundation.

On the night the ensemble will be led by Grammy Award-winner Mikhail Pletnev and renown pianist Lucas Debargue.

On night one Russian trumpeter Vladislav Lavrik will perform Shostakovich’s Concerto in C minor for Piano, Trumpet, and String Orchestra.

Following on, on the second evening, Debargue who will perform his interpretation of Piano Concerto No. 1 from Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

There’s no doubt that these world class musicians will put on quite a performance and we’re already looking for our bow tie so we can sit and watch this one.
From Dhs195. October 10 and 11, 7pm. The Cultural Foundation, Qasr Al Hosn, Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum Street
