THE SPIRIT OF THE MOORS
15/10/2015

The Embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco in partnership with the English Chamber Orchestra is organising The Spirit of the Moors”, a concert which will celebrate the talents of Moroccan musicians.

This concert brings to London the brilliant young Moroccan pianist, Dina Bensaïd, performing music by the internationally acclaimed Moroccan composer Ahmed Essyad; the father of Moroccan composers, Maurice Ohana, is also featured in his wonderful guitar concerto, especially written for Narciso Yepes and a specially constructed nine-string guitar; the younger generation is recognised in the first UK performances of music by the talented Nabil Benabdeljalil, born in 1972.

The concert is given by the UK’s premier chamber orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra, and the evening ends with the colourful music of Manuel de Falla in his El Amor Brujo, sung by the great Spanish diva, Clara Mouriz, a work that easily demonstrates the exciting musical influence of the Moors.

In addition, the distinguished Moroccan musicologist, Dr Ahmed Aydoun, will give a short talk in Cadogan Hall about Moroccan music at 6.15pm. This is free to ticket holders.

This event is kindly sponsored by BMCE Bank and Moroccan National Tourist  Office.
Date and venue:  7.30pm Thursday 15th October at Cadogan Hall, Sloane Terrace, London SW1X 9QD.
