About The Event

Conductor: Christopher Muscat 

Malta Philharmonic Orchestra

Jubilate Deo Choir


Genre: Contemporary

The premiere of Christopher Muscat's Stabat Mater and its subsequent release on CD in 2013 were met with exceptional critical and public acclaim. The Times of Malta described this as a work that "impresses with its freshness, its blend of spiritualism, religious symbolism and a high degree of emotion" while the prestigious music magazine TEMPO dubbed it "a monumental work." 

Ten years from its first performance as a result of it being awarded the first prize in the APS Bank Composition Competition, Muscat's Stabat Mater will be once again performed, this time in the awe inspiring surroundings of the St John Co-Cathedral in Valletta with the participation of Caroline Bruker (soprano), Josef Bugeja (cantor), Jubilate Deo Choir, Kor Malta and the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of the composer. 

This concert is being produced by RIDT with intention to raise funds for medical research.
