A rare opportunity to hear the distinguished Egyptian musicians, violinist Basma Abdel-Rahim and cellist Kaamel Saleh-Eldin, on their first visit to London in a rich and varied programme of European and Egyptian music. Basma is the daughter of the great Egyptian composer Gamal Abdel-Rahim, and she and her husband, Kaamel, will be playing works especially written for them by her father, alongside music by Campioni, Gabrielli, Haydn, Mozart and Bartok.  Gamal Abdel-Rahim (1924-1988) was the founder of the School of Music Composition in Cairo, the first of its kind in the Arab world.
