The current season is coming to an end, but before going into summer mode the Manoel Theatre is offering three very different but very high-level concerts with top local and international musicians.
The first in line is an evening with string quartets by Quator Arod, one of France’s leading ensembles that has won several prestigious music prizes and has performed on several famous international stages. This young ensemble started in 2013 and consists of Jordan Victoria (violin), Alexandre Vu (violin), Tanguy Parisot (viola) and Samy Rachid (cello).
The quartet will bring an exciting combination of well known string quartets by Joseph Haydn, Béla Bartók and Johannes Brahms. The concert takes place on Wednesday at 8pm.
On June 3 at 8pm the audience is invited to An Evening with Mozart. For this concert, pianist Joanne Camilleri is teaming up with the Cordia String Quartet, featuring David Lang (violin), Emese Toth (violin), Jacob Portelli (viola) and Frank Camilleri (cello). On the programme two of Mozart’s famous piano concertos, complemented with his String Quartet in F.
This concert will take the audience back to Mozart’s time in Vienna. It promises to be a delightful evening in good company.
For the closing of the season the Manoel Theatre is working with the Italian Cultural Institute to bring us a lazy summer jazzy mood.
The evening will feature Doctor 3, a well known Italian jazz ensemble with a very specific stylistic hallmark that pleases all audiences. For this concert they will combine music from Mancini, Berlin, Cohen and Lenon and McCartney, among others. The performers are Danilo Rea (piano), Enzo Pietropaoli (bass) and Fabrizio Sferra (drums). The concert starts at 9pm.
