What is Con_Tempo?

ConTempo is a new classical and contemporary music concert series focusing on but not limited to the modern turn of the 20th century chamber music repertoire to oeuvres closer to our time as well as specially commissioned compositions. The series will see a selection of Maltese and Malta-based performing artists such as Gabi Sultana (piano), Claire Debono (soprano), Gjorgji Cincievski (double bass), Philip Attard (saxophone), Ġużé Camilleri (percussion), and KorMalta, as well as Maltese contemporary composers. ConTempo is curated and produced by composer Karl Fiorini.
