Fantasy Flute will be the upcoming recital for flautist Silvio Zammit and pianist Ramona Zammit Formosa. The recital will be held at the Oratory of St. Francis of Assisi in Republic Street, Valletta, as part of the series of Lunchtime Concerts.
Mro. Silvio Zammit is a brilliant flautist with over 25 years of experience in flute performance and teaching. Together with his piano accompanist, Ramona Zammit Formosa, who is also a very versatile musician, they will be performing an excellent repertoire of flute and piano music.
Fantasy Flute will be held on Tuesday 3rd November 2015 at 12:30pm. The eclectic repertoire will feature some of the most famous pieces of classical music of all time Pachelbels Canon and Franz Schuberts Ave Maria. The programme will also include other musical gems such as Cimarosas Sonata in A Minor, Vaughan Williams Fantasia on Greensleeves, RuttersThe Lord bless you and keep you. The programme will also include Blavets Sonata no.1, Von Flotow Ah so pure and Poldinis Dancing Doll.
The music performances will take place in the baroque Oratory, which was originally the friars refectory. Over the years, it had been transformed into an oratory; hence it is beautifully adorned by magnificent baroque paintings, an elaborate gilded altarpiece and original monks benches. The oratory is usually closed to the public, therefore the lunchtime concerts are a wonderful way to experience the fabulous music and the beautiful chapel.
The regular performances present varied performers and musicians, who present sparkling and stimulating classical music on a weekly basis. The events are fund raising events for the Franciscan Church, which is undergoing extensive structural restoration. Tickets for the lunchtime concerts, costing 8 euro, can be obtained from the venue itself half an hour before the concert begins.
