Artistic Director of Teatru Manoel and the Valletta International Baroque Festival, Kenneth Zammit Tabona, has been invited to the 37th edition of the Ambronay Festival to adjudicate the E-emerging Ensembles, together with other European artistic directors, this coming October.
The new selection presents six young and talented ensembles, and being part of the selection process is a great honour and a formal recognition of the success the Valletta Festival has had over the past five years.
The Ambronay Festival is a French opera and early music festival, and one of the oldest and most famous festivals in Europe. The festival has recordings with labels such as the Auvidis label. Seven out of fourteen early recordings were with Jordi Savall, who is considered as one of the most eminent musicians within the baroque scene, and who performed in the Valletta International Baroque Festival earlier in 2016.
This section of the Ambronay Festival concerning the E-emerging Ensembles is a project directly supported by the European Union.
