This evening they will appear as a duo for the very first time, performing a number of specially arranged compositions for this concert (by Mohamad Abdel Wahab, among others) from the classical Arabic tradition. The exciting line-up indicates that Rima Khcheich and Maarten Ornstein do not fear the unknown or the experiment and that they strive for ultimate beauty.
