L'Orchestre Lamoureux Kicks Off Bahrain International Music Festival Events, On 19 October on Bahrain National Stage

 

Admirers of music sweetest sensational arts are promised to have a memorable rendez-vous when the coming Bahrain International Music Festival, organized by Bahrain Culture Authority,  kicks off on 19 October 2019,  with L’Orchestre Lamoureux concert on Bahrain National Theater stage. Tickets are sold at Virgin Megastore, at Bahrain City Center or via Virgin’s Middle East  website.

 one of the oldest French orchestras “L’Orchestre Lamoureux”, founded in Paris in 1881 by Charles Lamoureux, will present a classical orchestral concert at the Bahrain National Theatre. L'Orchestre Lamoureux is linked to influential representatives of the music industry such as Paul Paray, Igor Markevitch, Jean Martinon, Yutaka Sado, Leonard Bernstein, and Clara Haskil.

More than one and a half century after its birth, L'Orchestre Lamoureux is writing a new page of its history with the creation of the Lamoureux Chamber Orchestra, launching a concert entitled “100% Mozart”. Under the direction of violinist Hugues Borsarello, this chamber orchestra reflects the musical outcome of the Orchestra and the determination of the musicians to reveal itself to the public in all its authenticity. This intimate musical configuration will allow the interpretation of a varied repertoire to be closer to the audience and appreciate the orchestra’s diverse music, which promises an undisputed innovation. To this aim and others, L'Orchestre has entrusted its keys to the famous violin solo Hugues Borsarello. For the first time, the Lamoureux Chamber Orchestra will host a guest of honor, Maestro Jean-Philippe Collard, who was raised with a musical family that made his surrender to the charm of Chamber music.

Bahrain International Music Festival also schedules a series of world music and culture events, special workshops hosted and organized in different locations, such as the Cultural Hall, Art Center and Dar al-Muharraq between 19-26 October 2019.
