As part of their Arab World tour, Jacaranda Ensemble will give two concerts in Egypt, on Sunday 12 February at the Cairo Opera House and on Wednesday 15 February at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina.
Jacaranda Ensemble, which consists of five principal players from the Brandenburg Symphony Orchestra, creates a unique sound through an original blend of instruments.
The ensemble features Richard Mosthaf on didgeridoo and alpenhorn (alpine horn), Thomas Hoffmann on alpenhorn and French Horn, Sebastian Pietsch on saxophone, Thomas Ringleb on percussion and Matthias Dressler on marimba and percussion.
The ensemble notes on their website that the origins of the instruments they use are "often thousands of miles apart," yet "through a mixture of composed and improvised music [they manage to interweave them] into a musical tapestry.
Prior to their Egypt performances the ensemble will play in Muscat, Oman. They will complete their tour in Beirut, Lebanon.
