An Exclusive Performance by Maxim Vengerov
On Sunday 17th September, virtuoso violinist Maxim Vengerov will be donating his enormous talent for an exclusive performance at Manna’s 5th Gala Dinner with a programme that includes Brahms’ Scherzo from the FAE Sonata 6 and Enescu’s Sonata No 2.
Born into a musical family in Siberia, Maxim Vengerov, 43, has been playing violin since the age of five when, on his first meeting with a renowned violin teacher, she asked him, “Do you have strength in these hands?” The young boy punched her in the stomach as hard as he could. “Fortunately, she was in a good mood that day and she accepted me as a student!
Vengerov has been wowing audiences worldwide both as a soloist and with orchestras for over three decades. In the footsteps of his mentors Rostropovich and Barenboim, the multiple-award winner has added conducting and teaching to his ever-growing repertoire and cites jazz, baroque and even rock music as influences in his music.
This is an extremely rare opportunity to see Maxim Vengerov up close and personal and the event will be at the Sheraton Grand Park Lane. Tickets can be purchased at: http://www.mannauk.org/event/gala-dinner/
The MANNA Gala Dinner will help support the immediate relief of poverty of young and old, whether living in the north or the south of Israel. The charity does this with its pre-paid cards, which allow the dignified purchase of food before the Chagim, and through restaurants, meals on wheels, youth centres and vocational training courses open to all. The dinner is fully sponsored so all funds raised on the night including the tickets will go entirely towards our charitable objectives.
