Here’s an account on the Vangelis site:
Tonight, not long after 8 o’ clock in the evening, local time, Vangelis and the assembled musicians performed the concert at the Katara Amphitheater in Doha, Qatar.
The performance of the choral symphony called “Hope” (in 5 movements) along with other new compositions written for the occasion, and the performance of Chariots of Fire and Conquest of Paradise proved an impressive spectacle. Classical music, sometimes pleasantly restrained, sometimes big and powerful. On accasion, it brought back memories of Mythodea. Good memories, that is. Passionate performances, captivating music.
