Preparations for the Dubai World Expo are moving along well! After the start of construction in September and the team recruitment campaign in October, the soundscape is now being developed. And it is the Monaco Philharmonic Orchestra that can be heard in the Monegasque pavilion.

This is one of the major events of 2020: the Dubai World Expo will open on October 20th and the Principality intends to make itself visible. Work on the Monegasque pavilion began more than two months ago and the recruitment campaign for the team that will ensure its proper functioning and the reception of the public is also underway. Yesterday, a new announcement testifying to the progress of the preparations was made: the Monaco Philharmonic Orchestra will be responsible for recording the music that visitors will be able to hear within the Principality’s dedicated structure.

A “Monegasque Fantasy”

Under the direction of Kazuki Yamada, the conductor of the Monaco Philharmonic Orchestra, musicians will play music composed by Dédé Truqui, which takes up the theme chosen for the exhibition: Monaco in 360°. Entitled “Monégasque Fantasy”, the piece evokes the different facets of the Principality, mixing tradition and modernity.

In short, the face that Monaco wishes to present during the event that will last 6 months. Dédé Truqui is himself a well-known representative of the Nice and Monaco region, his creations are inspired by local traditions to which he pays homage through songs, poems, and even sketches. The atmosphere in the Pavilion should remain faithful in every way to that of the Principality!
