Concert by the italian pianist and composer Alessandro Martire

The Embassy of Italy in Doha, in collaboration with Katara Cultural Village, organized on February 14th 2020 at Opera House Katara the concert by the young Italian pianist and composer Alessandro Martire, who chose Qatar to perform the preview of his album “Share the World”. This new record is inspired by his several experiences abroad and the different cultures and traditions he had the chance to interact with. The tracks, composed during his journeys and tours around the world, express his wish for a deeper human connection among peoples from different countries over borders and boundaries, as well as a profound union between art and nature.

SPEECH BY THE AMBASSADOR ALESSANDRO PRUNAS:

"Welcome to the concert organized by the Embassy of Italy and Katara Cultural Village, as part of the fruitful cooperation in the field of culture which is contributing to enhance the partnership between Italy and Qatar. Let me first thank for this Khalid Al Sulaiti, General Manager of Katara, for the excellent work done so far to enhance our bilateral cultural relations.

Today the Opera House hosts the performance of Alessandro Martire, a young Italian composer and pianist, a true talent of the new generation of Italian musicians. A generation of artists who have lived and travelled around the world, mixing their culture with diverse cultures, traditions and people they have encountered abroad on their path.
For this kind of composers and musicians, the inspiration is out there, hiding in what is new to their knowledge and soul.

We are very proud that Alessandro has chosen Doha and this stage to perform tonight the preview of his latest album entitled “Share the World”, which has been deeply inspired by his travels and tours. Indeed, it aims at celebrating this new idea of humanity, where all people and nature are connected and care for each other, over borders and boundaries.

Performing with Alessandro on the stage of Katara as a further testimony to the ongoing artistic exchange and contamination, I am pleased to present the Mosaic String Quartet, formed by members of the Qatar Philarmonic Orchestra: Mohamed Oweda (violin), Reem Khoury (violin), Islam Abd El Aziz (viola) and Hassan Moataz (cello).

For the first time in Qatar, please welcome on stage Alessandro Martire”.
