Jean-Philippe Rieu to Bring Tribute to The Sultan of Oman

Jean-Philippe Rieu To Bring Tribute To The Sultan of Oman

Musician Jean-Philippe Rieu will give a concert for the Sultan of Oman this coming Monday. The Eysden musician wrote a piece of music especially for him.

A tribute to his 'Majesty Sultan Quaboos Al Said' will be the title of the song that Jean-Philippe Rieu has especially composed for the Sultan of Oman. This music piece will be played in the concert hall of what was previously the royal palace of the sultanate of Oman, but now serves as the Hotel Al Bustan Palace in the capital city of Masqat.

Jean-Philippe Rieu, brother of orchestra leader André Rieu, and his theatrical company have been invited to conduct a concert consisting of their own compositions as well as the works of others. The performance will take place on the evening before the 40th Anniversary of the Sultanate. The tribute to the Sultan will also be released on a CD.

Rieu travelled to Oman at the invitation of the Dutch Ambassador Stefan van Wersch. Jean-Philippe's group consists of him on the piano, Inge Stallinga-Gorrison violin, Manou Libert on the harp, and for this occasion they will be joined by soprano Catharine Marquet. The program has been taylored for this occasion and contains compositions by Jean-Philippe, as well as rearranged workings from Vivaldi, Debussy, Salieri and Mozart.

The composition of the "Tribute to His Majesty, Sultan Quaboos Al Said" preludes the National Anthem and depicts the beauty of the land, the prosperity it has experienced in the last 40 years, and wishes the Sultan and his people luck and peace.

In 2010 Jean-Philippe can again be seen in Dutch and Flemish venues with his own multi media theater music production AZUR.

UPDATE: DECEMBER 28, 2009 ... Jean-Philippe Rieu has received a high cultural award from the Sultanate of Oman. He received the award after a concert, for which Rieu composed the "Ode To The Sultan".

Thank you to John for Finding and Translating this!
