KorMalta back on the scene

The spring lockdown in the current COVID-19 crisis wrought havoc with all that used to be taken for granted. It hit the arts scene as it did everything else.
During that period and since, as stagnation threatened to stifle artistic activities like concerts and recitals, Riccardo Bianchi, KorMalta's director sought to keep his singers busy. He sent them sheet music to study and eventually got them together in groups so that they would perform it at the opportune time. "United we stand" was how this concert was dubbed, with two performances in mid-October at the Greek Theatre in Mosta.

 Riccardo Bianchi was chorus master and one must add that the MEUPC consists of the cream of members of various local choirs.

In all three Baltic republics, choir singing is a deeply-rooted way of life, so the combined choral forces were a guarantee of the eventually splendid delivery they gave. They were very precise, diction was very good, singing was crisp and well-phrased, and entries, even in the more difficult passages such as that ‘infernal’ fugue, were on cue. The conclusion with the choir and soloists reached different dizzy heights.
