The brilliant young Egyptian pianist Mohamed Shams will be performing on Sunday November 13, 2011 at 8:00 PM in the Golden Hall of the Mohamed Ali Palace in Manial. The program will be entirely dedicated to Franz Liszt. For a biography of Mohamed Shams (who recently won the Bryden Thomson Prize) and a complete program of the evening, click here.

This concert is an event not to be missed for classical music fans (and not ... good music is good music), not only for the musical quality to be expected from the performance itself, but also because it will mark the return to activity, after January's revolution, of the International Music Center, an organization that has brought to Cairo in the past many fantastic musicians and provided for memorable concerts. Welcome back, and may the tradition continue.
