Bohemian cabaret

The Strada Stretta Concept, under the auspices of the Valletta 2018 Foundation is tomorrow presenting Medieval Bohemian Cabaret, a music concert with Tom Armitage and Kirsty Williamson, under the artistic direction of Giuseppe Schembri Bonaci. 

The music will be from the Bohemian 1920s French café society cabaret, where composers such as Debussy and Hahn would have played their pieces for the first time.

There will also be the world premiere of a song cycle called Montségur, written by Armitage and performed by Williamson and which uses six medieval poems by female troubadours.

The repertoire for the evening includes La Courte Paille (Francis Poulenc), Le Collibri (Ernest Chausson), Psyché (Émile Paladilhe), Automne (Gabriel Faure) and A Chloris (Reynaldo Hahn), among others.

Medieval Bohemian Cabaret is being held tomorrow at 8pm at The Splendid in Valletta. Entrance is free.
