Notes on Albania
The Albanian Ambassador Mal Berisha celebrated his country’s Independence Day with a sell-out concert – a whimsical mix of classical music, folk favourites, poetry, envelop-pushing contemporary pieces and a world premier of Four World Seasons, a modern re-imagining of the Verdi classic.
Speaking at the opening, Ambassador Berisha said the Albanian people looked forward to being re-united with the rest of Europe, having been granted EU candidate status in June. The concert, he said, demonstrated the European roots of Albanian culture.
Guest of Honour Lord Robert Maclennan said Notes on Albania showed why Albania forms an “integral part of the European cultural mosaic”.
