THE RED SEA CLASSICAL MUSIC FESTIVAL IN JANUARY 2014
WILL BE IN RECOGNITION OF MAESTRO VALERY GERGIEV’S
The Red Sea Classical Music Festival under the directorship of Maestro Valery Gergiev will be delayed this year in order to celebrate with an extraordinary and special festival in January 2014. This has been agreed and coordinated with Maestro Gergiev.
Pinchas Postel, Gergiev’s representative in Israel, notes that the program of the upcoming festival, to be held January 16–19, 2014 will be upgraded in light of Maestro Gergiev’s 60th birthday. Postel has also said that the date has been set for the Festival in 2015. “We have no intention of leaving Eilat” said Postel, and guarantees that the next festival will be celebratory and special.
The Festival, with the participation of the artists from the Marinsky Opera and under the baton of Maestro Valery Gergiev, one of the world’s greatest conductors and director of the orchestra and chorus of the Marinsky Opera House from Saint Petersburg, Russia, continuously for 11 years, has become one of the city of Eilat’s traditional cultural events along with jazz festivals, Anafaza in the desert and chamber music festivals.
For Israelis and visitors from abroad, lovers of classical music who faithfully attend the festival annually, it will be worthwhile to wait for the next festival which promises to be exciting, extraordinary and exceptional…in the true sense of a festive event.
