Voci, colori, interculturalità: l’Orchestra Giovanile Mediterranea diretta dal maestro libanese Toufic Maatouk

Posted by Emiliana Lopes on Sicily present

Gli ideatori e curatori, protagonisti morali e pratici di questo momento musicale sono stati molti. Attraverso lo splendido concerto, infatti, si è fatto il primo passo verso un progetto di gemellaggio che vede coinvolta l’OGM, fondata nel 2002 e maturata sotto la cura del giovane direttore d’orchestra Alberto Maniaci, e il Medio Oriente, rappresentato dall’altrettanto giovane e talentuoso maestro libanese Toufic Maatouk che, per l’occasione, ha diretto l’orchestra. Il progetto avrà seguito il maggio prossimo con l’orchestra ospite a Beirut per lo svolgimento di due recite di Così fan tutte in collaborazione con musicisti e cantanti libanesi.

Al Bustan – the classical music festival in Beirut that survives war and assassinations

Toufik Maatouk, the festival’s Lebanese assistant conductor, has seen it grow. A baritone, who makes his Carnegie Hall conducting debut in May, he says it gave him his big breaks.... later conducting the Lebanese Philharmonic. For him, “no other festival in the Middle East gives space to young talents. Others bring big names and productions, but the young generation also need space. They can’t go direct to La Scala or the Met.” Maatouk founded the Christmas choral festival Beirut Chants, whose performers are 60% Lebanese. “Twenty years ago there were no good professional choirs here, and the musical level was nothing like this. Now we have five concerts a night in Beirut.”
