As from today, the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra kicks off with a week-long online festival featuring five internationally renowned musicians.
This festival will feature Gautier Capuçon, who is known at France’s ”true 21st century ambassador for the cello”. Teenage vortuoso violinist Daniel Lozakovich will be performing as well.
The programmed prepared by the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra will be highlighting the exceptional skills these talents have.
Also joining the star-studded line-up are the violinist Alena Baeva, the Ukrainian pianist Vadym Kholodenko and Romanian cellist Andrei Ioniță.
The festival is organized in collaboration with the European Foundation for Support of Cuture (EUFSC) and it is part of the Malta International Music Festival.
Both the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and EUFSC share the same values to be a catalyst for music and culture. They also aim to bring music directly to audiences’ homes in full-scale online concerts such as this one.
Principal Conductor Sergey Smbatyan will lead the MPO and soloists in a repertoire presenting great classics. Works by Maltese composers Joseph Vella and Charles Camilleri, whose enigmatic work Malta Suite opens the first concert, feature alongside pieces by Alexey Shor, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake Suite and Grieg’s Peer Gynt to mention a few.
