Event information
Before going into its summer break, the TCA Abu Dhabi Classics programme will once more look at the theme of the traveller, this time by focusing on the romantic metaphor of ‘the wanderer’. To do this, Abu Dhabi Classics invited the young, celebrated virtuoso pianist Bertrand Chamayou. For his second UAE concert, French pianist Chamayou, who has performed in the world’s most prestigious venues, will be playing in the Al Ain Municipality Theatre, featuring a programme inspired by his latest successful album, Wanderer, devoted to the works of one of the main composers of the Romantic era, Franz Schubert, and including his famous four-movement fantasy for solo piano, the Wanderer Fantasy.
