Abu Dhabi Classics is thrilled to announce the first of its artists confirmed to perform for its eighth season!
The season will commence on October 12 at the iconic Emirates Palace with Mozart and Satie Violin Concertos by the prestigious Camerata Salzburg Orchestra with violin virtuoso Renaud Capuçon, one of the most fascinating living performers of this repertoire. The Performance will start at 8pm.
The evening will be completed by pieces from late 19th century, early 20th Century minimalist composer Erik Satie that influenced among other musical genres, Jazz music, and also Surrealism. Satie’s clear musical lines are also reminiscent of Rossini’s and Mozart’s music. Get ready for an evening with some of the most famous works of the Viennese Classical Period and of the New Music and appreciate not only the beauty of Classical music but also its permanence and evolution over the centuries.
The highly anticipated Abu Dhabi Classics new concert season of cultural harmony, will bring a dynamic and diverse programme of classical and traditional music to the Capital.

Since its formation, the CAMERATA has been a regular ensemble in its home city of Salzburg as a concert and opera orchestra at the Salzburg Festival as well as the Mozart Week, and has its own subscription series at the Great Hall of the Mozarteum Foundation.
The CAMERATA regularly performs in Europe's centres of music from the Vienna, Zurich, Frankfurt, Ferrara, Luzern and Munich to Cologne Philharmonic and Paris; it is invited to various international festivals, as a representative of Salzburg's Mozart style, and goes on at least one major overseas tour every year.
More than 60 recordings on vinyl and CD, many of which were awarded major prizes, document the musical culture of the Camerata Salzburg spanning six decades.
Musical personalities such as Géza Anda, Sándor Végh, Sir Roger Norrington and András Schiff have influenced the CAMERATA. Famous musicians such as Clara Haskil, Alfred Brendel, Philippe Herreweghe, Franz Welser-Möst, Pinchas Zukerman, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Teodor Currentzis, Hilary Hahn and Fazil Say have performed with the CAMERATA through the decades, whose classical core repertoire with Salzburg's "genius loci", Mozart, and Viennese Classical music at the centre, extends to the Romantic and Modern periods.
As its greatest inspiration and longtime conductor, Sándor Végh's call to: "Search within yourself, then you will have something to say!" still echoes today and challenges the CAMERATA, again and again, to lay bare the "soul of chamber music" as the central element of the CAMERATA sound in the oeuvres it performs, and to bring it to life.
