An evening in tribute to three great 20th-century musicians and vocalists of the Arab world: Abd al-Wahab, Farid al-Atrash and Abd al-Halim Hafez, who moulded Arab art music and left their mark upon it, each in his own unique fashion. All three became living legends and received adulation and admiration throughout the Arab world and internationally.
The concert is devoted to their finest canonic works, including performance of a broad range of vocal works in variety of musical styles, inalienable assets of Arab classical music in the 20th century. All these will be performed with the addition of improvised segments that enrich the emotional depth of the works and bring a sweeping sensation of joy, known as “tarab.”
