Basha: "Entizar" -- Premiere of DW Commission

"Entizar," which is the Arabic word for "waiting," is the first work 35-year-old Egyptian composer Mohamed Saad Basha wrote following the death of his mother.

The piece expresses his anticipation of meeting her again in the afterlife.

Basha's roots in the Egyptian musical tradition and his fondness for western rock music are evident in the orchestral composition, which was commissioned by Deutsche Welle for the 2007 Beethovenfest.

As part of the festival, Basha conducted the world premiere of "Entizar," performed by the Cairo Conservatory of Music Orchestra, in the Beethovenhalle in Bonn.
