Harp Concert by Silke Aichhorn

Friday 2nd February, 2018 at 8 p.m.  at Our Lady of Victory Church, Valletta

​in collaboration with Din L-Helwa

Rotary Club Malta has chosen the Church of Our Lady of Victory, Valletta as the venue for another harp concert by the acclaimed international harpist, Silke Aichhorn.  This is being organised in collaboration with Din l-Art Helwa and a most beautiful programme has been selected appropriately for this historic place of worship which proudly contributes to 2018 and to Valletta as European Capital of Culture.  Music lovers will be able to enjoy, amongst others, not one, but two Ave Marias, that by Gounod and then by Caggini, the last arranged specially for this concert by Ms Aichhorn, the Intermezzo Sinfonico from Cavalleria Rusticana by Pietro Mascagni,  Rimsky Korsikov‘s Scheherazade, Claude Debussy’s Clair de Lune,  Grandjany‘s Fantaisie sur un thème de Haydn, and The Moldau by Smetana, in which the harpist truly displays her skilled virtuosity.

Silke Aichhorn is one of the most requested European harpists who is a soloist as well as a performer in chamber formations. The public and critics alike widely applaud her concerts.  She is considered one of the few harpists who is very successful in presenting the harp as a solo instrument with a repertoire that ranges from early baroque to contemporary music.

The concert takes place on , which, with its perfect acoustics, set below the magnificent ceiling paintings of baroque artist, Alessio Erardi, provides a perfect setting for the heavenly music of Silke Aichhorn.  Proceeds from the evening will be dedicated by Rotary Club Malta to Din l-Art Helwa’s ongoing restoration of Victory Church.  Tickets at €20 can be purchased via Din l-Art Helwa, by sending an email on info@dinlarthelwa.org, or through the Our Lady of Victory Church by phoning 99637409.  Due to limited capacity, those intending to attend are kindly asked to send their remittance to Din l-Art Helwa, 133 Melita Street, Valletta VLT1120 for guaranteed seating.
