  • (1888PressRelease) October 07, 2016 - Yangon - Departing on Monday 13 February, this very special 4 night cruise from Bagan to Mandalay will welcome onboard eight classical musicians who will treat passengers to a series of intimate concerts throughout the journey.

    Among these musicians - a string quartet of two violins, one viola and a cello, an oboe, clarinet, bassoon and flute - will be artists from the famous Opera de Paris and Orchestre de Paris. Accompanying them will be French music journalist Elsa Boublil who will give a lively introduction to each concert, providing passengers with information on the composers and scores.

    Taking place against different backdrops and locations as the Strand Cruise's custom-built Myanmar cruise ship makes its way along the mighty Ayeyarwady River, the concerts will include a Mozart themed recital and dinner on a private sandbank, sunset on the ship's sundeck to the sounds of Mozart's quintet for clarinet and strings, and string quartet in G major and a Valentine's Day concert featuring Brahms' quintet for clarinet and strings, and the theme from the film The Mission for oboe and strings.

    The 'Musical Voyage through Myanmar' will also feature music themed lectures from Elsa and surprise activities with the musicians. An occasion not to be missed!
