Piano Concert by Jean Muller - Abu Dhabi

Published Wednesday December 09 2015

After a successful debut concert in the Middle East at the Ismaili Centre in Dubai on December 7th, Mr Jean Muller gave another outstanding performance on December 8th in the Arts Centre of the New York University in Abu Dhabi. The concert was hosted by the Embassy of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg to celebrate the end of Luxembourg’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union in the presence of His Excellency Mr Ahmed Alham, Assistant Undersecretary for Consular Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Over 150 guests attended the concerts, amongst them Ambassadors, Government officials, private sector representatives, friends, art lovers and members of the New York University’s community.

Born in Luxembourg, Jean Muller is a pianist of the stature of the great pianists from the past. Achieving “miracles of virtuosity with apparent relaxed ease”, he imbues his performances “with his very special brand of magic” delivering interpretations “of the very highest quality” and “guaranteed to bring chills and thrills”. The unique mix of originality and authenticity allows Muller to treat the classics of the piano repertoire in a “revelatory” way his Chopin has been described “as inhabited by Chopin himself” and his Liszt as “exactly as Liszt would have imagined it”. Jean Muller crafts his interpretations with the utmost care and dedication, approaching the great masterworks with humility, “recreative urgency” and as “a poet, colourist, architect and virtuoso” resulting in “some of the most phenomenal playing you could wish for”. In the words of the president of the ICMA, Remy Franck “Muller has authority. Muller is an authority”. “Superlatives exhausted!”

Mr Muller left excited after his first trip to the Middle East where he, as a true ambassador to Luxembourg, has established some excellent contact.
