Fifty One East is set to welcome its first piano, the “Liszt 200th Anniversary” of the renowned brand Bösendorfer, which will be commemorated by leading international pianist Jan Jiracek von Arnim. Arnim arrives in Doha today for a live performance and signature session in the Yamaha music square in Fifty One East, Lagoona Mall, from 7pm-8:30pm. Described by BBC Music Magazine as “one of the leading pianists of his generation”, Arnim has earned his title by claiming first place at several international competitions. He was appointed as a piano professor at the prestigious School of Music in Vienna, Austria, and is frequently invited as a judge at many international piano competitions. In 2011, he was selected to be the artistic director of the prestigious “International Beethoven Piano Competition Vienna”. Bösendorfer ranks among the world´s oldest piano manufacturers, rich in tradition and world-famous for its unmistakably inspiring sound as well as its outstanding quality of its instruments. The Liszt 200th Anniversary is a limited edition model with only 25 pieces produced globally. It is an elegant instrument that was designed in the honour of the great composer Frantz Litz. Darwish Holding Darwish Technology executive director Ziad Asmar said: “Fifty One East has been defining the benchmark of luxury since 1950 and we are very excited about adding this limited edition piece to our collection of luxurious offering. Fifty One East has an elegant and timeless presence in the Qatar market as we continue to deliver to the market some of the world’s most prestigious elements.
