16/01 – 30/01/2016 Valletta
The fourth edition of the Valletta International Baroque Festival is nearly here.
Built by the Knights of St John after the Great Siege of 1565 and consequently adorned by its eight langues, Valletta was to become a strongpoint of culture, economy and politics in the world. Embellished at the height of the baroque period, Valletta rose to become a city built by gentlemen for gentlemen.
The Valletta International Baroque Festival has been conceived purposely as a celebration of this baroque identity of Valletta. For two weeks, between the 16th and the 30th of January 2016, Valletta will resound with music from the period when it was built.
Produced and managed by Teatru Manoel the Festival has 25 different events in 9 venues in Valletta. This Festival is one of the major events on the international cultural map and is a unique opportunity to experience an array of top musicians including leading artists such as
Jordi Savall, Philippe Herreweghe and harpsichord wizard Mahan Esfahani as well as local performers which include the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and VIBE, the Valletta International Baroque Ensemble.
