BEETHOVEN AND SCHUBERT AT THE MANOEL
The second of the Wednesdays at the Manoel series continues with a wonderful recital of works by Beethoven and Schubert, performed by the Bar-to-Bar Trio on the 12th December at 8pm, with a pre-concert talk at 7.15pm.
Bar-to-Bar Trio is an off-shoot of Bar-to-Bar Quintet, which consists of members of the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra who are passionate about chamber music, and relish every opportunity to perform in this more intimate formation. The trio is made up of violinist Klara Nazaj, pianist Joanne Camilleri and cellist Akos Kertesz.
Throughout their individual careers, the musicians have collaborated with many renowned orchestras around the world, including the World Philharmonic Orchestra, New Century Baroque Orchestra, the Valletta International Baroque Ensemble, Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma, Hungarian State Opera, Hyogo Performing Arts Centre Orchestra, Limburgs Symfonie Orkest and Het Residentie Orkest.
On top of their busy schedule, they are also active soloists, performing a range of works from the baroque to the contemporary repertoire, both in Malta and around Europe. All musicians have several recordings in various capacities to their credit.
The full programme includes Beethoven’s Trio Op.97, Archduke and Schubert’s Trio Op.100.
Tickets are €20 with discounts for senior citizens and students. Bookings can be made from the Manoel Theatre website.
