The multi-cultural concert will feature music and artists from a diverse background inspired by the desire to highlight music as a vector to promote environmental awareness and commitment and to demonstrate the power of music as a tool for intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding and bolstering cultural diversity.
The programme will draw on of major compositions related to earth and environment, such as those by Claude Debussy (La Mer), Antonio Vivaldi (La tempesta di mare) and Villa Lobos (Forest of the Amazon). This will be complemented by a new composition by Yann Robin, a well-known contemporary French composer, on the theme of â€ścosmosâ€ť. New York Virtuosi Quartet will begin the program with an innovative replay of two pieces of Tan Dun Ghost Opera (Good Earth and Cabbage). All musical instruments for these performance are made with vegetables.
The Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of famous Russian Maestro Constantine Orbelian, will offer innovative interpretations of selected works in dialogue with an ad hoc group of renowned traditional musicians playing their traditional instruments from a number of countries.
The concert will support UNEPâ€™s Plant for the Planet: Billion Tree Campaign, which aims to plant 7 billion trees by the end of 2009. In soliciting the donation of trees or seedlings or financial contributions from Governments, the private sector and civil society organizations, the concert organizers will align themselves with the Campaignâ€™s objective.
Donations can be announced on the occasion of the Geneva concert.
