Valletta Baroque Festival

Biographie

January 10th 25th, 2020 

The 8th edition of the Valletta Baroque Festival will again feature top-notch artists, both from Malta and abroad, performing wonderful music from Monteverdi to Bach and beyond. Homebase of the festival is Teatru Manoel, but just like last year the festival explores beautiful Baroque settings outside Valletta, such as Verdala Palace or the beautiful San Filippu ta' Aggira Parish Church of Żebbuġ, and as such bring baroque music into the places it was composed for.

Built by the Knights of St John after the Great Siege of 1565 and consequently adorned by its eight langues, Valletta not only had to serve as a powerful fort, but was also to become a strongpoint of culture, economy and politics in the world. Embellished at the height of the baroque period, Valletta rose to become a city built by gentlemen for gentlemen.

The Valletta International Baroque Festival has been conceived purposely as a celebration of this baroque identity of Valletta. The first Festival was held in January 2013. During the Festival Valletta resounds with music from the period when it was built.

More importantly, an international festival like this forthcoming edition will continue to, not only confirm and enhance Valletta’s prestige but, also show Europe that this small historical outpost in the Mediterranean has over the centuries played a vital role in European history.

Finally, the high calibre programme that has been put together should not only give this Festival the international status that it deserves but also extend the Baroque map of Europe to Malta.

Diesem wunderbar zusammengestellten Opernabend fehlte keine inhaltliche Dramaturgie, allein mit noch mehr Mut, Expression und Stimmung hätte das Theatralische dem Flair des Besonderen Rechnung getragen.

Ein fantastisches Spiel mit dem Kulturerbe in Valletta

Jean Rondeau © Edouard Bressy
Exquisit und unterhaltsam war, was Jean Rondeau und Thomas Dunford in intimer Atmosphäre aus ihren Instrumenten und den Kostbarkeiten der weniger bekannten französischen Hofmusik holten.
