As featured for yesterday’s concert, Zaretsky is a prize winner at the All-Russian Open Competition of Organists and the International Competition of Organists in Germany and has been head of the Faculty of Organ and Harpsichord at the St Petersburg State Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatoire since 2011. He has also been awarded the title of Honoured Artist of Russia.
■ The concert is being held at Loop Bar on Strait Street in Valletta at 8.30pm. Entrance is free. The festival runs until December 9 with concerts taking place in various cathedrals, basilicas and churches across the Maltese islands.
