After last year's successful concert tour, the renowned Malta Philharmonic Orchestra is touring through Europe again. As a musical ambassador of its small home country, the orchestra stops at the legendary Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein, the Herkulessaal in Munich, Wiesbaden's luxurious Kurhaus and the monumental Dome Hall of the Hannover Congress Centrum.
The guest star of the spectacular programme is the 29-year-old virtuoso Stella Chen. Her career experienced a huge take off, when she won the Concours Reine Elisabeth in the Belgian capital Brussels, in 2019.
The American violinist has played with orchestras such as the Belgian National Orchestra, the Brussels Philharmonic and the Luxembourg Philharmona at festivals and in major venues in Europe, America, Bhutan, Israel, Jordan, Cuba or Colombia. Together with the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Sergey Smbatyan, she is the soloist in Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy's magnificent violin concerto and in the Violin Concerto by the contemporary composer Alexey Shor. In the concert programme, both works encounter the Aram Khachaturian's Excerpts from Spartacus Ballet Suite.
