Additional event information

The pre-eminent viola player of the modern age Yuri Bashmet is heading to perform Live in one of the most picturesque venues of the city Auditorium of the luxurious Emirates Palace Hotel and will capture the audience’ senses in a spellbinding musical performance.
Yuri Bashmet has inspired many composers (Alfred Schnittke, Sofia Gubaidulina, Poul Ruders, Alexander Tchaikovsky, Alexander Raskatov, Mark-Anthony Turnage, Giya Kancheli, etc) to write for him, including 50 viola concertos and other works. As a soloist and a conductor, Bashmet has performed with leading symphony orchestras: Berlin Philharmonic, Berlin Symphony, New York Philharmonic, Вауrische Rundfunk, San Francisco Symphony, Chicago Symphony, Boston Symphony, Vienna Philharmonic, French Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, Paris Orchestra, etc. Repertoire with these orchestras has included the symphonic works of Brahms, Haydn, Schubert, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, and Beethoven. Particularly noted concert at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow featured Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 13. Bashmet has performed recitals, and had his joint performances together with noted musicians including Mstislav Rostropovich, Gidon Kremer, Sviatoslav Richter, Isaac Stern, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Martha Argerich, Mischa Maisky, M. Portal, Shlomo Mintz, Oleg Kagan, Roberto Carnevale, Viktor Tretiakov, and Maria João Pires.
This event is promising to be one of the most exclusive and elegant events of the season and without a doubt will be a significant event in the cultural life of Abu Dhabi and entire UAE. With a very limited number of seats, the Auditorium will be transformed into an intimate music hall. An opulent and comfortable seating arrangement, numerous bar and food counters as well as the renowned Emirates Palace Hotel hospitality will make the evening truly memorable one. The beautiful and luxury Auditorium of the Emirates Palace Hotel is the perfect venue to witness the unique and unforgettable performance of a World Legend.
