FNCC is proud to welcome French pianist Simon Ghraichy to Namibia!

Thursday, 18 January 2018

Acclaimed French pianist with Mexican and Lebanese background, Simon Ghraichy is renowned for his unique personal style defined with rich, diverse cultural influences. He is appreciated by peers for his irreproachable virtuosity and remarkable artistic taste, as well as by less experienced listeners for his uninhibited personality and charisma. 

Thus, prestigious venues such as the Berliner Philharmoniker, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées and the Carnegie Hall have witnessed a dramatic drop of their audiences’ average age when Ghraichy’s concerts were staged. 

Ghraichy has performed as a soloist with orchestras and in chamber music and solo recitals in music halls over the five continents: at Carnegie Hall in New York and the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, Versailles Royal Opera, Berliner Philharmonie in Germany, and many other venues in France, Germany, The Netherlands, Finland, Norway, Australia, Peru, Mexico, Cuba, Brazil, Egypt, Colombia… 

His new CD with the Yellow Label, HERITAGES, was released on 4 March 2017 when he performed on the esteemed stage of the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris and has been number one in the classical charts. 

RMB is the proud sponsor of the Windhoek performance as well as a masterclass piano session Simon Ghraichy is hosting for aspiring pianists.

Organized and facilitated by the FNCC and hosted at the NTN.
