Abdel Rahman El Bacha At Baalbeck International Festival

Name: Abdel Rahman El Bacha At Baalbeck International Festival



Bacchus Temple

A very tough French musical critic said of him “Abdel Rahman El Bacha is a shining star in his world of music, a world that knows no physical boundaries or historical limitations. His language is understood universally, touching hearts and minds through his chosen instrument, the piano, and with the help of nimble fingers and an exceptional talent. These are skills he develops and hones with great precision, knowing that to realise one’s dream, nothing can be left to chance.”

He came for the first time to Baalbek in 2008 to interpret as a soloist, with his astounding technique, a various repertory that totally seduced us and left us on our thirst to see him play again his exceptional interpretations.

This year, he is coming back to enchant us once again.
