STRING QUARTETS

STRING QUARTETS

STRING QUARTETS features a recital of modern string quartets in a very unique setting.

Zene Quertet will present a programme of original works by composers Philip Glass, Alfred Schnitke, John Adams and Norma Beecroft inside the underground crypt of the Zejtun parish church.

This crypt is the largest in Malta’s diocese, designed by Lorenzo Gafà and dedicated to St Catherine of Alexandria.

The concert will be taking place just two days after All Souls’ Day, so the crypt will be decked in funereal paraphernalia of black damask and candles.

STRING QUARTETS is part of Modern Music Days, which is organised by Teatru Manoel, the Malta Association for Contemporary Music, and the Valletta 2018 Foundation as part of the culture programme of Valletta 2018 European Capital of Culture.
