Some artistes shine in solo recitals and Hungarian Moroccan pianist, Marouan Benabdallah not yet thirty-five, is one of them. It was only recently that Benabdallah performed debut recitals at Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Aspen Music Festival, Teatro Colon with the Buenos Aires Philharmonic Orchestra, the Castleton Festival Orchestra under the baton of Lorin Maazel and he is already raring to perform more concerts. Formally trained at the Bela Bartok Conservatory and the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest, he was presented with the Medal of the Hungarian Parliament for his achievement in music, an honor he shares with such artists as Placido Domingo, José Cura and others.
Anybody associated with theatre will agree that Abraham Alkazi is a legend and the fabulous exhibition titled The Theatre of E. Alkazi that received rave reviews in New Delhi early this year, has been invited to NGMA, Mumbai, where it opened on September 9, 2016. Everyone associated to Alkazi is aware about how special this is because it is here where Alkazi began his dream and spent his formative years living, working and developing his ideas on the teaching and dissemination of theatre.
The exhibition will be on for five weeks, ending on October 18, 2016, Alkazi’s 91st birthday and to make the event more exciting there will be curated walks through the exhibition.
