Chamber Orchestra ‘Capriccio Fridericiana’ and Cyprus orchid ‘Ophrys kotschyi’
A wonderful concert together with TRNC soprano Laden
Ince to open the Spring Season on 3 March 2014 at 20:00 hrs.
By Heidi Trautmann
The endemic orchid ‘Ophrys kotschyi’ is
known to lure insects and orchid lovers alike to Cyprus and in this case we owe
her the visit of the renown and highly respected chamber orchestra ‘Capriccio
Fridericiana’ with 13 members, playing eight violins, four violas, one bass and
the trumpet from Karlsruhe.
It was on the occasion of a visit to Germany and a Tourism fair which Mrs Irene Raab
Marancos from Kaleidoskop Travel Agency was attending for North
Cyprus, that she spent a lovely evening at a concert with the
above orchestra. Through a common friend and orchid lover she met the orchestra
chef and his wife Mr and Mrs Heitz, and over a dinner they got deeply involved
in the mysterious world of orchids.
Thus Mrs. Raab who is known as an activist in many
fields concerning the culture and nature of Cyprus, invited the Orchestra to North Cyprus to open the Spring Season in Bellapais with a
concert and together with Kıbrıs Piyano Dernegi/Cyprus
Piano Association and its piano students they would share the duties of organisation.
I have read the programme, it promises to be a very
special music event we should not miss, an event organized by music lovers for
music lovers, a musical delicacy, also by the inclusion of our young opera
singer, the soprano Laden Ince, into the programme. It is of particular concern
to the organisers to see as many music students at the concert because it is of
high importance to listen to as many musicians as one possibly can as part of
the process of learning.
