The Mozaiek Ensemble plays poetic Arab songs from the inner heart, rearranged in a cross over of western classic with eastern music.
On the program of the production Arabic Delight are amongst others, works of Albinoni, Mozart and classical arranged pieces of different eastern composers from the 19th and 20th century like, the  Rahbani Brothers, Göksel Baktagir, Zaki Nassif, Muhammad Fulaifel etcetera.

 

The contribution of the Mozaiek Ensemble to Opera Spanga 2018 has been made possible thanks to support from the Louwe Kooijmans van der Sluijs Fonds, managed by the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds Friesland   

 


Four times a modern triumphal march  

In Verdi’s opera Aida the famous triumphal march sounds, echos often at footballgrounds.
In the context of Leeuwarden-Fryslân2018, the municipality of Weststellingwerf commissioned Opera Spanga to invite the composers Monique Krüs, Feras Khouri, Floris van Bergeijk and singer-songwriter Jente Meijer to compose a modern triumphal march. Those four new marches will be played before the opera Aida by a local choir under the guidance of Monique Krüs; the "Arabic March" by the Syrian-Dutch Mozaïek Ensemble under Feras Khouri; Soli Brass Leeuwarden en Jente Meijer.

As from June 21st, the Grachtenfestival will publish the program at https://www.grachtenfestival.nl but we are delighted to announce to you already our contribution to the festival edition 2018.

The theme ‘closer to music’, closer in Dutch is ‘dichter’ which also means ‘poet’. The traditional poetic songs of our project Arabic Delight fit in perfectly well.
