NAREK HAKHNAZARYAN AT TEATRU MANOEL
Armenian cellist Narek Hakhnazaryan will be gracing Teatru Manoel’s stage during the Dvorak & Elgar Concert on the 11th November at 8pm.
This truly impeccable musician will be alongside the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of the highly acclaimed Greek conductor, Michalis Economou.

Hakhnazaryan will perform as soloist during the first number of the programme – Antonin Dvorak’s Cello Concerto in B minor. This is one of the most frequently played of all cello concertos, and is especially known for its rich orchestral music and melodic passages of the solo instrument.
Maestro Economou’s Di-chon will follow; a symphonic work based on the Montagues and Capulets story of Romeo and Juliet, re-arranged expressly for this concert.
The evening will then close with Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations – a series of 14 short musical portraits, the subject of which are friends and family of the composer.
