Malta-based Polish pianist Julia Miller will be joining Apertus Quartet, hailing from Lodz Poland, for a unique concert of music by Mozart, Polish composer Stanislaw Moniuszko, and premiering a new quintet written for the occasion by Maltese composer Karl Fiorini. Concert is supported by the Arts Council Malta and The Polish Embassy in Malta.
Valletta-Varsavja-Vjenna: Bringing together three musical cultures, is a project where Malta-based Polish pianist Julia Miller, Poland-based Apertus Quartet and Maltese composer Karl Fiorini, are going to create an original musical performance ranging through three different eras – from the classical to the contemporary – within three different musical cultures. The project includes a Malta premiere of Polish romantic composer Moniuszko’s String Quartet no.1 in D-Minor and world premiere of Piano Quintet by Maltese contemporary composer Karl Fiorini. The performance will open with Mozart’s one of only two minor piano concertos, Piano Concerto in D-Minor, arranged for a piano quintet – in itself a Malta premiere. This project is part of a three-city tour that will take the same programme to be performed in Vienna and in Warsaw. This project is supported by Arts Council Malta and Embassy of Poland in Valletta.
