Gillian Zammit Soprano

Clifford Bechtel Tenor

Rosetta de Battista Piano


Programme includes lieder by Schumann and Chopin

A delicacy for music lovers, the recital features one of Malta’s best-loved voices, Gillian Zammit, who teams up with US tenor Clifford Bechtel and pianist Rosetta de Battista. The second evening in this edition of the festival celebrating Schumann and Chopin this time with a programme of lieder and duets. While this is obvious in Schumann’s case it is less so for Chopin. Altghough predominantly a composer of piano music his interest in folk song roots is evident not only in the Cello Sonata but also clear in his songs

Chopin’s music for the voice preserves his Polish heritage, both in word and in tone, and is a mirror image of his keyboard works.
