Flutist Silvio Zammit and pianist Ramona Zammit Formosa will be marking the end of the lunchtime concert season with a performance celebrating life and love.

Flutist Silvio Zammit and pianist Ramona Zammit Formosa will celebrate the closing of the lunchtime concert season with a flute and piano performance. The performance will present a delightful programme celebrating life and love. The performance will be held today at noon at St Augustine Monastery in Old Bakery Street, Valletta.

The duo will perform J. S. Bach’s spiritual Adagio and three lively movements from CPE Bach’s Sonata in E minor. The programme ensues with the ‘Spartacus’ Love Theme composed by Khatchaturian and Tchaikovsky’s June from ‘The Seasons’ also known as Barcarolle, which was widely popular and appeared for various arrangements. The programme is given a Spanish twist with Granados’ Romantica and a German touch with Hasse’s Tambourin. The final two pieces on the programme are two sprightly flute compositions: one is Green’s Piccaroon Polka for Piccolo and Strauss’s Tritsch Tratsch Polka for Piccolo.

After the concert, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy a free guided tour of the interesting chambers of the monastery, which are adorned with beautiful and historical sacred ornaments.

The concert will be held today at noon at St Augustine’s Monastery in Old Bakery Street, Valletta. Proceeds from the event will go to the restoration project of the Augustinian Monastery. Tickets can be obtained from the venue itself half an hour before the concert begins. For more details, call 7968 0952 or e-mail baroccomalta@gmail.com.
