East, West & Halfway back

The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and Teatru Manoel present East, West and Halfway Back, a concert under the baton of Raoul Lay, the MPO’s Artistic Director.

As highlighted by the event’s name, the programme features works by composers stemming from different continents: Dmitri Shostakovich (Russia), Charles Ives (USA), and Maurice Ravel (France). Shostakovich’s loved String Quartet No. 8, arranged for orchestra by Rudolf Barshai, is an autobiographical essay full of emotion and melancholy.

The central part of the concert includes two works by Charles Ives originally paired together as Two Contemplations. The first piece evokes “the sounds of nature and happenings” whereas The Unanswered Question offers an example of the universal religion Ives conceived. French pianist Roger Muraro also interprets Ravel’s light-hearted Piano Concerto, composed “in the spirit of Mozart and Saint-Saëns”.

East, West and Halfway Back will be held at Tearu Manoel on Saturday 9th November at 7.30pm. Tickets can be purchased through the Teatru Manoel’s website www.teatrumanoel.com.mt or from Teatru Manoel’s box office.
