VIAF’s 2020 23rd edition, held in honour of Mro Joseph Vella, proudly announces one of many fringe activities it has organised this year. To celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, a vocal master class will be given by leading Maltese soprano Miriam Cauchi. Ms Cauchi will mainly but not exclusively focus on the approach to opera and Lieder, highlighting the nuanced differences in the interpretation of both genres. Special attention will be given to Beethoven’s setting of Schiller’s An die Freude in his 9th Symphony (Choral).
The master class will be held at Studio Theatre, 81 Old Mint Street, Valletta. Due to social distancing constraints, the venue can only accommodate 25 people. Those interested please write to the organisers on [email protected]
This event will also be transmitted live online on VIAF’s Facebook page and on youtube.com/VictoriaInternationalArtsFestival
This master class is sponsored by the Valletta Cultural Agency. VIAF’s main sponsor is Arts Council Malta.
