L’Ambasciata di Italia a Doha, in collaborazione con il Katara Cultural Village, ha organizzato il 14 febbraio 2020 presso il Teatro dell’Opera del Katara il concerto del giovane pianista e compositore Alessandro Martire, che ha scelto il Qatar per presentare in anteprima l’album “Share the World”. Il nuovo progetto discografico si ispira alle esperienze professionali e di vita di Martire all’estero, dove il musicista entra in contatto con nuove culture e tradizioni. I brani, composti durante i suoi viaggi e tournée in tutto il mondo, esprimono il suo desiderio di una maggior interconnessione tra persone di diversi Paesi, al di sopra di barriere e confini nazionali, così come di una maggiore integrazione tra uomo, arte e natura.
IL DISCORSO DELL’AMBASCIATORE 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”.
