A new cooperation between the German Embassy and Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah: German organist Christian Schmitt, recipient of multiple awards, held his concert “Deutsche Orgelwerke” at the Amricani Cultural Centre on Gulf Road on 11 January 2015 in front of a packed house.
Christian Schmitt, recipient of the ECHO Klassik award in 2013, enthused around 300 listeners, amongst them Ambassador Eugen Wollfarth and other representatives of the diplomatic corps, with his program of around one hour. He delivered a great musical performance of selected master pieces of German organ music, for which he was rewarded by his captivated audience with resounding applause. After the concert the musician delighted the interested audience and press in taking the time for talks and interviews. The imposing organ offered the perfect background for photo opportunities.
Thus, a very successful concert came to its end and it made the audience wish for many more events of this kind.Enlarge image (© Embassy)
