The next season
starting february 2004 will include one of my
symphonic suites "Al Mansura"on the 14th of
February, 2004.Tarek Ali Hassan's
Symphonic Suite for Orchestra "Al Mansura"
scheduled for performance at the big hall in the
new Cairo Opera.It is to be a performance by the
Cairo Symphony Orchestra, Conductor Taha Nagui.
The work is an early youthful work in four
movements: Triumph, Funeral, Dances, Festival. It
celebrates "Al Mansura" in the Northern Delta, a
once beautiful city, rich in history and historic
events in the
confrontation/communication/conflict, between East
and West, a truly informative interface. Mansura
lies on the Damietta branch of the Nile which the
composer considers as his adopted home town.
