The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Roberto Beltrán Zavala brought the International Spring Orchestra Festival to a spectacular conclusion celebrating the struggles for freedom through Karl Fiorini’s first symphony dedicated to the golden jubilee anniversary of Malta’s independence.
Alongside the symphony, Beltrán Zavala guided us on a musical journey to the near orient with Rimsky-Korsakov’s most popular work and highly evocative Scheherazade suite, bringing the evening and the festival to a magnificent finale.
Symphony no. 1 (World Premier) – Karl Fiorini
Scheherazade Suite op.35 – Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
