The Strada Stretta Concept will be presenting The Stein Songs, a concert with Tom Armitage and Stephanie Pan, under the artistic direction of Giuseppe Schembri Bonaci.

Gertrude Stein was the literary counterpart of Picasso, Matisse, Gauguin, who greatly contributed as both artist and patron to the Paris art scene before World War II. She was one of the central figures, organising soirées at her house, and through her friendships with people like Picasso, Matisse, Stravinsky, Satie, Hemingway and many others.

Luc Houtkamp is a composer from the Netherlands whose work bridges the gap between different worlds of music. Having a background in jazz and improvised music as a saxophone player, his musical goal is to establish a continuum between improvisation and composition in which the difference between the two dissolves.

The concert is being held on Wednesday at 8.30pm at The Splendid, Strait Street, Valletta.  Entrance is free.
