On Saturday the 15th June world famous soloists Julian Milkis and Haik Kazazian shall join the Capella under the direction of its principal conductor Alexandr Chernushenko for a programme of light Classics. Tchaikovsky, Rimsky Korsakov, Shor and the Gilliland Jazz concerto are sure to arouse the interest of countless music lovers. Tchaikovsy and Rimsky Korsakov have done much to popularize Russian music in the west. Both have a unique Russian flavour while simultaneously forming part of the western tradition of great composers. Shor and Gilliland are gaining popularity lately. They are composers who bridge the gap between the world of classical music with that of the more popular kind.
On Sunday the 16 th June the Capella orchestra shall be playing the Music of one of the great composers of the 19 th Century. Without a doubt , after Wagner, Brahms is the greatest composer of the middle of the 19 th century. The genius who gave new life to all the important genres of the 19 century except opera prolonged the life of the organ repertoire, chamber Music , the lieder and above all the concerto and symphony. Two world class soloists, Alexandr Rudin and Vladimir Pogoretskiy shall be joined by the Capella orchestra under the direction of Alexei Galea Cavallazzi for the great Concerto for Cello and violin. Galea Cavallazzi is Malta’s most internationally respected conductor. The evening shall be rounded off by the 3rd symphony.
