Malta Philharmonic Orchestra

As Malta’s only professional orchestra, the MPO is in high demand, performing in over 70 concerts every year, including symphonic concerts, opera productions in Malta and Gozo, community outreach and educational programmes as well as various concerts of a lighter nature. Its busy schedule notwithstanding, the MPO has increasingly ventured beyond Malta’s shores in recent years, having undertaken its first overseas tour back in 2001. Since then, it has collaborated with numerous orchestras and opera companies and performed in leading venues across the globe, including in China, Italy, Germany, Austria and Belgium.

Over the years, the orchestra has performed with many renowned artists including Karl Jenkins, Joseph Calleja, Andrea Bocelli and Bryn Terfel, acclaimed conductors such as Michalis Economou, Peter Stark, Jean-Marc Burfin, Wayne Marshall and Philip Walsh, as well as pop stars including Claudio Baglioni, Suzanne Vega, Michael Bolton and Anastacia.

The MPO also has a number of recordings to its name. Its CDs include a project with international record label Naxos featuring works by Maltese composer Charles Camilleri and two CD series published by Cameo Classics, Music of the 19th Century Jewish German Composers and British Composers Premiere Collections. A CD featuring the music of Polish composer Alexandre Tansman with the CPO Label was released in 2018.

The MPO is a keen exponent of Maltese composers, regularly performing their works in Malta and abroad and premièring – as well as commissioning – new compositions.

It is also responsible for the orchestral training and professional development of the next generation of Maltese musicians, through the MPO Academy and the Malta Youth Orchestra, which itself regularly gives concerts across Malta. At the same time, it is actively involved in organising educational programmes for children, through workshops and special performances.

While it celebrates 50 years of music, the MPO remains intent on delivering quality orchestral music to the Maltese islands, all the time continuing to promote Malta’s musical heritage overseas.

Vienna Forever

Malta Philharmonic Orchestra
RAOUL LAY, Conductor

Arnold Schoenberg: Verklärte Nacht Op.4
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Concerto for Piano and orchestra No.21
Ludwig Van Beethoven: Coriolan Overture in C minor, Op. 62
Franz Schubert: Symphony No.8 in B minor, “Unfinished”Schubert’s

Unfinished Symphony, although consisting of only two movements, boasts extraordinary musical prowess. Its fearlessness may stem from the composer’s experience of a world of darkness and pain. The work is complemented by Beethoven’s Overture depicting von Collin’s story, and Mozart’s popular yet virtuosic Piano Concerto together with Schoenberg’s early masterpiece in a late-Romantic style.

PRICE: €30-€5

Giacomo Puccini: La Bohème

For more reasons than one, Paris has lived up to its name of La Ville-Lumière (‘The City of Light’). For more than just an innocent reason, Mimì ends up in darkness and asks Rodolfo to lend her a matchstick. That is where a new flame is born, in the Parisian attic on Christmas Eve.

ll Trovatore

Malta Philharmonic Orchestra
JOHN GALEA, Conductor

Giuseppe Verdi: Il Trovatore

Verdi’s opera is a perfect storm of excitement: a poignant human story spiked with ferocious drama and fraught with conflicting deep-seated emotions and sharpened resolve. The most glorious music merges gallantry with the ethereal to reach truly astonishing heights in a masterpiece full of exquisite melodies.

Astor Piazzolla:
Cuatro Estaciones
Romance del Diablo
Michelangelo 70
Ave Maria
Concerto for Quintet

Astor Piazzolla was the foremost composer of tango music, who carried the signature sound of Argentina to clubs and concert halls around the world. After establishing the tango nuevo in the 1950s, he formed the seminal Quinteto Tango Nuevo, featuring the bandoneon alongside the violin, guitar, piano, and bass. Such a formation, he believed, represented an ideal reduced yet balanced orchestra.
