On Friday 23 May, the Egyptian Sinfonietta, conducted by its founder and artistic director Ahmed El-Saedi, performed the Violin and Piano concerto by Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Suite no 3. for Strings by Respighi and Concerto for Strings by Nino Rota. The evening also included Passacaglia for Strings composed by El-Saedi.

The soloists of the evening will be Rami Khalifé on piano and Mohamed Sharara on violin.

Founded in 2012, the Egyptian Sinfonietta is one of the off-springs of the Philharmonic Society, an NGO founded and headed by El-Saedi. With a decade-long history, the society's activities -- concerts, cultural exchanges and educational activities -- aim at contributing to the musical life of Egypt outside governmental institutions.
