VIENNA IN VALLETTA
Vienna is a city of music and a city of dreams. No other city conjures the sound of music simply at the mention of the name. It is the home to Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Mahler and the site of the world famous Staatsoper, as well as the Vienna Philharmonic. Vienna shares its musical charms with the world.
On the 17th February at 8pm, Vienna will share an evening of these delights with Maltese audiences. Following last year’s sold out performance at Teatru Manoel, musicians of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra will once again collaborate with musicians of the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra in celebrating the sons of the city.
Werner Hink (former Vienna Philharmonic Leader), Edward Kudlak (viola) and Jurgen Fog (cello) will share the stage with flutist Rebecca Hall in Michael Haydn’s Sunny Quartet in D major. Godfrey Mifsud (clarinet) and Maria Conrad will then join the Viennese musicians for Mozart’s timeless Clarinet Quintet.
The second half of the programme will see the string quartet joined by Akos Kertesz (cello) in a rare opportunity for Maltese audiences to hear Schubert’s famous quintet for two cellos. Schubert’s final and greatest chamber work is considered to be a pinnacle of classical music.
