Violin and Piano recital - TONIGHT

I know this comes a bit late but I just came to know that tonight, Wednesday December 21 at 8:00 PM the theatre of the Italian Cultural Institute in Zamalek will host a Violin and Piano recital with Regine Bernhauer (Piano) and Mahmoud Said (Violin).

The concert will feature a selection of the most important and characteristic pieces chosen from the Mediterranean repertoire; a night meant to be an historical and artistic summary, from Brahms to Bazzini through Arabic music. Europe and Egypt meet each other in a dialog made by young musicians: a promise for the future, a great hope for music and for art. The programme of the concert is as follows:

P. de Sarasate: Romance Andaluse op.22
J. Brahms: Sonata Nr.3 d-Moll op.108


Dia Succari: A la Dalona (Folk song)
A. Bazzini: La Ronde des Lutins op 25
Adel. A. Afify: Scherzo for Violin and Piano
P. de Sarasate: Zigeunerweisen op.20
