Flautists Silvio Zammit and Ramona Zammit Formosa will be giving a delightful concert of flute music on Thursday 25th January 2018 at noon at the Oratory of St. Francis, Valletta.
The flute duo will be performing the lively and sparkling works of Boismortier, Stamitz and Blavet. The second part of the programme shifts to works from the opera as the flautists will be performing Bizets Overture to Carmen, Webers The Bridesmaid's Song and Huntsmen's Chorus, Mozart La Ci Darem la Mano (Don Giovanni) and the vivacious Brindisi from Verdis La Traviata.
Silvio and Ramona Zammit have been active as a duo for the past 20 years. They are both Fellows of the London College of Music and teach music in the Malta School of Music in Hamrun. Particularly due to the versatility of Ramona on the piano, flute and harpsichord, the duo can perform in the different combinations of instruments.
During 1978-2001, Silvio was a member of the National Orchestra of Malta. Currently he follows his professional career as a teacher and freelance soloist. In 1998, the duo won the Lloyd Weber medal for distinction in interpretation. They have performed in various solo and chamber recitals in the U.S.A., Italy, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Portugal, Bulgaria and England. They have also recorded CDs of Maltese music by Pace and Camilleri. In collaboration with Gukulari Ensemble, they have also recorded CDs of 18th and 19th century music. Several Maltese composers have dedicated works to the duo. Their extensive repertoire ranges from the baroque to the contemporary
