Wikipedia defines Chamber music as a form of classical music, written for a small group of instruments which traditionally could be accommodated in a palace chamber. Most broadly, it includes any art music that is performed by a small number of performers with one performer to a part.
In its 7th year, the festival will take place between March 11th and 17th, 2012. The major festival’s concerts will take place in a new and exciting venue – an amphitheatre nearby the Isrotel Princess Hotel, with the exquisite view of the red mountains. A unique location for the festival’s major events. The festival’s concerts will be divided between the amphitheatre and the concert hall at the Isrotel Princess Hotel, and both will be acoustically set for the concerts. The
festival’s participants will include the renowned British Baroque ensemble La Serenissima conducted by Adrian Chandler, that will present a fully staged performance of Vivaldi’s opera “L’Olimpiade”, the renowned Latvian State Choir, Mokum Strings from Amsterdam, pianist Stephen Kovacevich, viola player Eniko Magyar, Roby Lakatos Ensemble, cellist Natalie Clein, pianist Oxana Yablonskaya, Maria Juncal Flamenco Ensemble, singers Claire Meghnagi, Mhairi Lawson and Stephen Gadd and many others. An exciting team consisting some of the most sought after music professors from the leading international academies, will join the guest artists to give master-classes and workshops to some 120 students from all over the world. The festival’s programmes will be varied: early music, classical music, contemporary pieces, passionate Flamenco, Hungarian Gypsy music and more.
