Frangis Ali-Zadeh in Zermatt

Frangis Ali-Zadeh was a guest and lecturer at the annual International Zermatt Symposium of the organisation CREANDO (International Foundation for Creativity and Leadership in Economics, Arts and Science) from 12 until 16 January 2002 in Zermatt, Switzerland.

Normally five (this year eight) creative leaders from the branches of the film industry, economics, science, literature, music, etc. deliver lectures and discuss their personal experiences on their creative paths with the audience. The chief topic of 2002 was "Autonomy in Creative Leadership."

The speakers in earlier years have included several Nobel Prize winners (such as Gnter Blobel, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Arno Penzias, Myron Scholes, Wole Soyinka) as well as numerous other personalities such as Maya Angelou, Jane Goodall, Guillermo Mordillo, Kent Nagano and Liv Ullman.

The participants this year, besides Ali-Zadeh and others, included Leo Esaki (Japan/USA, Nobel Prize Winner in Physics) and Tomi Ungerer (Ireland/France, cartoonist and author). Frangis Ali-Zadeh gave a concert together with the cellist Ivan Monighetti on 15 January 2002 during the course of the symposium's programme. Amongst the works performed were her own "Habil-sajahy," "Ask havasi" and "Music for Piano."
