It ranges from tarab-inflected cafe and concert performances involving oud – often in ensemble with a range of Arabic or jazz instruments – through local and foreign pop to the strains of experimental music and sound art.The opening night concert is comprised of a program of works by Beethoven, Saint-Saens, Sarasate and Bizet, featuring four international soloists who are as noteworthy for their relative youth as their musical gifts.Beethoven's "Concerto for piano, violin and cello" will assemble U.K. pianist Oliver Poole, Italian violinist Anns Tifu, who both pleasured Al-Bustan audiences in 2014, and Georgian cellist Lizi Ramashvili. The show will feature cellist Alexander Buzlov and pianist Veronika Ilinskaya, performing a program of works by Schubert, Beethoven and Brahms.A more formal counterpoint to Ahmadyeh's performance is "Music of two cultures," hosted by AUB's Assembly Hall and featuring the early music ensemble Accentus Austria.During the weeklong run-up to Al-Bustan's grand finale, vocalist Mario Frangoulis will sing the work of Theodorakis, a mystery act will lead an evening of traditional bouzouki music and, penultimately, pianist Paolo Restani and Gianluca Marcian?'s World Orchestra will perform an evening of 19th-century work (by the usual suspects – Beethoven, Saint Saens, Liszt and Mozart) all inspired by classical Greece.
