MSA’s 100 years at Palazzo de La Salle celebrations – Concert 3

16 March, 2023 | 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Charlene Farrugia Concert

Artistic Director and Project Designer Karl Fiorini

Malta’s finest musicians will be joining forces to celebrate the Malta Society of Arts’ 100 years at Palazzo de La Salle with a series of monthly concerts and masterclasses, curated by Karl Fiorini.
Compositions from the MSA’s music archive and music by past composers affiliated with the MSA will be brought to life by Christine Zerafa, Charlene Farrugia, Carlo Muscat, Philip Attard and many more. In addition, this Maltese musical cultural heritage will be flanked by commissioned compositions by contemporary composers.
In this third concert as part of this music series celebrating the Malta Society of Arts’ 100 years at Palazzo de La Salle, pianist Charlene Farrugia will be performing the following programme:

Carlo Diacono | Fantasie Impromptu
Karol Szymanowsky | 4 Études op. 4
Carmelo Pace | 4 Bagatelles
Véronique Vella | 3 short piano pieces
Laura Mjeda Cuperjan | ReMiniScenes
Heitor Villa-Lobos | Hommage à Chopin

Charlene Farrugia was recognised at an early age as a particularly gifted child, and was referred to as the “enfant terrible of Maltese piano” and “Princess of Maltese piano” by music critics. In 2018, she received Malta’s International Achievement Award, and was made an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music in 2020. She is one of the ambassadors of the Euro Mediterranean Music Academy (EMMA for Peace) under the patronage of UNESCO and Honorary President Riccardo Muti.

The concert series is supported by Arts Council Malta under the Programme Support Scheme.
