Qatar Airways Flies Famous Italian Pianist To Doha

Doha, QATAR – Qatar Airways is pleased to announce that it will be sponsoring a concert in Doha by the celebrated Italian pianist Antonio Sardi de Letto.

The concert, which takes place at the Ritz-Carlton in Doha on Saturday September 25, has been an eagerly awaited event, which will be attended by the Italian Ambassador to Qatar, H.E Giuseppe Buccino Grimaldi.

“The Italian Embassy is proud to present the famous and talented pianist Antonio Sardi de Letto,” said H.E Giuseppe Buccino Grimaldi, adding: “We are confident that his programme and his references to Italy will be of great interest to everyone.

“This is the first concert organised by the Italian Embassy. We are determined to pursue our efforts for more events, with a view to stressing the paramount interest Italy attaches to Qatar as 'a land of opportunities' in every field,” he explained.

Although the concert is by special invitation, music enthusiasts interested in attending can book their seats in advance through the Italian Embassy.

Sardi De Letto has performed widely in solo recitals all over Europe, North and South America, the Middle East and Asia. Born in Rome in 1963, de Letto is a graduate of piano from the Conservatory of Santa Cecilia in Rome, and a professor of Piano and Piano Literature at the Pontifical Institute of Sacred Music in Rome.

“It is with great pleasure that Qatar Airways welcomes Mr de Letto to Doha,” said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, Akbar Al Baker. “We are delighted to sponsor this event, as we are keen to bring music to this city.

“With the star power that Mr de Letto brings with him, this event will undoubtedly draw a great amount of interest, and contribute greatly in highlighting fine arts and especially classical music in Doha.”

Pierre Perusset, general manager of The Ritz-Carlton Doha, added: “The Ritz-Carlton is pleased to host this inspiring event and to work together with the Italian Embassy in promoting this classical piano recital. Cultural events like this enhance our position as a social centre in Qatar.”
