Renowned Spanish concert pianist Pablo Amorós is all set to wow audiences in the UAE capital as he gears up to perform at a special charity gala concert this Friday, April 12 at the Emirates Palace Hotel Auditorium
Royal Arrow has announced the programme details for the event titled “From Spain with Love”. Proceeds from the concert will be donated to the Make-a-Wish Foundation UAE, which grants wishes to children with critical illnesses.
The 90-minute recital programme will feature an incredible selection of works by Spanish masters de Falla, Granados and Albéniz, and some of the most celebrated compositions by Chopin and Schumann. It will mark the first time some of these legendary masterpieces are presented in the UAE while honouring the strong and enduring Arab and Spanish cultural connection.
Amorós is set to perform 17 pieces, starting with “Arabesque in C Major, Op. 18” from Robert Schumann, followed by “Valses poéticos” from Enrique Granados. Frédéric Chopin’s “Nocturne op, 27 nº1 and nº 2” and “Ballade No.3 in A flat major, Op. 47” will follow before the intermission.
The second part of this exclusive programme will include “Serenata Andaluza” by Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. Amorós will close the concert on a high note by performing five different pieces by Isaac Albéniz from his ‘Suite Iberia”, including “Evocación”, “El Puerto”, “Rondeña”, “Almería” and “Triana”, considered some of the most brilliant and challenging works in the piano repertoire.
The concert is being sponsored by Royal Arrow, which is marking 40 years of successfully promoting bilateral investment opportunities between Spain and the UAE. All proceeds and donations will help critically-ill children supported by the Make-A-Wish Foundation UAE.
