Ten years ago the musicians of the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra were assembled from 30 different countries through competitive auditions. The first concert was held on October 30, 2008, with Lorin Maazel conducting Ludwig van Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, Maurice Ravel’s Bolero, and the world premiere of Marcel Khalife’s Arabian Concerto, which includes soloists on nay, qanun, bouzouq, oud and tabla. On October 30, 2018, Conductor of Honor Dmitrij Kitajenko will celebrate ten years of music-making by the orchestra in a nearly-identical program.
