(8 Feb 2018) LEADIN:A child violin prodigy and his concert pianist father are taking audiences by storm in Amman.The pair from the Czech Republic are fast becoming an international phenomenon.STORYLINE:A haunting violin tune fills the concert hall of Al Hussein Cultural Centre, in Amman, Jordan.The musician is just 15 and is accompanied by his concert pianist father.Eduard Kollert started playing the violin and piano at the age of 7, after seeing his father Jiri Kollert perform with Maestro Josef Suk, a Czech violinist. He began learning the violin at the Music Institute of Prague while his parents taught him to play piano.Two years later, at the age of 9, Kollert performed a Bach violin concerto and a Beethoven piano concerto with the Prague Philharmonia. His international career began shortly after, taking him to Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Russia to perform."I like the travelling, when I can go to a new place for a concert it's not only for playing but also for understanding the new culture of that place," says Eduard.During this two hour performance, the father and son duo from the Czech Republic play a variety of classical pieces by renowned composers such as Kreisler, Wieniawski and Prokofiev. Eduard Kollert has been described by music critics as "one of the world's youngest musical prodigies." He has won a series of international competitions, including the Tchaikovsky competition for Young Musicians.Today's concert has been organised by Friends of Jordan Festivals in cooperation with The National Music Conservatory. Souha Bawab, the executive director at Friends of Jordan Festivals says:"Classical music should be heard by everybody, every age, and we want precisely to pass the message that children should start studying music at a very early age and this is the best example to show how much passionate and talented children could have opportunities to become famous musicians at a very early age, which is the case of our young violinist this evening."Events such as these are also helping boost the cultural and artistic scene in Jordan while developing the tourism industry. "Many people travel specifically to Jordan to attend performances," adds Bawab.In September 2017 Friends of Jordan Festivals organised a concert in Jerash, a city 53 kilometres (33 miles) north of the capital Amman, featuring internationally renowned tenor Andrea Bocelli. The organisation is now planning a classical concert every month in Amman and will present a duo by a Japanese pianist and a French cellist next month.Friends of Jordan Festivals hopes to expand these events to other cities across the kingdom in the future, with a particularly emphasis on bringing classical music to universities.You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/you...
