They are making a name for themselves as a formidable piano duet. Gisèle Grima and Erika Gialanzè will regale tomorrow’s audience with the best in the Romantic repertoire in a programme of works by Scubert and Brahms. Another attraction is the world premiere of up-and-coming Maltese composer Alex Vella Gregory. Alex will be in the audience and will be speaking about his new work himself!
Concert will be held in the Aula Mgr G. Farrugia and starts at 8pm.
Gisèle Grima and Erika Gialanzè are Maltese pianists who have been collaborating since 2013 when a realization of sharing music became an enthusiastic and bold commitment. As one of Malta’s few piano collaborations, the Duo has already been in demand to perform in various venues around the island. In 2014, the Grima-Gialanzè Duo performed at St James Cavalier, Valletta, and their immediate musical chemistry led to an invitation to appear as guest artists at the Three Palaces Festival later that year. This year, they were invited to perform at the International Spring Orchestra Festival where they premiered Moti by local composer Albert Pace. It is the genuine love of music-making that has brought these two musicians together and they are willing to keep the Duo alive through recitals and educational projects. Future performances include a recital at the Valletta International Piano Festival 2016.
