Born Cairo 1937 to academic parents deeply immersed in science but also committed to the arts. Started learning the violin at 4 years old. Survived an environment deeply inimical to polyphonic music and became especially committed to polyphony. Studied Medicine and practiced as doctor in private and in academia but was always attached to music as his raison d'etre.

Music in all its forms, the dynamic arts, and sciences especially sciences of life are for him the salvation of humanity and self. His great dream is to sow some seeds towards "musicalisation" of the World and of the process of human evolution and the emergence of a globalised interactive multidimensional pluralistic World community where all parties are in an intensely alive but dedicatedly non-violent interaction like in the "Marriage of Figaro" and 'piano concerto' model left for humanity by Mozart. Studied music with Italian teachers in Alexandria and at The Royl Academy of Music in London. Deeply interested in Osiris, Gelgamesh, Ghandi, and the neglected knowledge of humanity in its virginal uncorrupted beginnings and writes dramas for the theatre on these subjects.

Sophocles, Aeschylus but especially Euripides' "the Bacchae", and the recurrent Osirian drama are a continuous source of inspiration. Studied Medicine at Cairo University, London, Glasgow and Edinburgh Universities. The medical insight into life and social dynamics has helped no end in the development and maturation of a musico-dramatic vision of the human predicament and its primordial dramas as well as yearned-for resolutions. Deeply unhappy about international dynamics since the turn of the twenty first century which should and could have been the century of pluralistic peace and harmony i.e.

the century of non-violence and music! For a few years took up the chairmanship of the new Cairo Opera but the usual conspiracies strangled a wonderful experiment which he started. His early orchestral works and a big choral work' song of Africa' have been destroyed in the great fire of the first Egyptian Opera. The only surviving Orchestral work is a 'juvenalia' work the 'Al Mansura' symphonic suite. A recent Sinfonietta for Strings on Egyptian folk themes is also frequently performed at the new Cairo Opera and has been choreographed as a ballet by Abd El Menem Kamel.

Recently he has taken to writing chamber music. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
