Gulf Weekly Melodies from Europe

MUSIC lovers can enjoy a modern take on pan-European chamber music at the Bahrain Cultural Hall tomorrow.

The concert, Colors of the Saxophone, will be performed by Arcis Saxophon Quartett, a group of four eclectic saxophonists from Munich, Germany.

The group was invited by the German Embassy and the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities.

Established in 2009, Arcis Saxophon Quartett’s mission is to make classical music accessible to everyone. Approaching music from a global perspective, the band has brought melodies from all over Europe to six continents.

“After two years since our first visit, we are happy to be back and to enjoy the warm sun of Manama,” the band posted on social media.

Through events like these, the embassy hopes to expand the public’s perception of Germany.

The embassy wishes to move away from stereotypes like ‘good engineering, fast cars, good food and nice scenery,’ and to present ‘a versatile cultural life’, consul Hans-Jürgen Lamprecht told GulfWeekly.

The German-Bahraini Film Week, another event run by the embassy, will take place next month during which award-winning German films like Gundermann, When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit and Too Far Away will be screened.

Colors of the Saxophone will begin at the Bahrain Cultural Hall, near the National Museum, at 8pm tomorrow. Entry is free and only fully-vaccinated or Covid-recovered individuals will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis.
