At the first concert the Armenian Premiere of Joseph Vella’s "Rebbieha" Symphonic Poem is going to take place.The project aims to present Malta's culture in Armenia. It is the continuation of the “Armenian Culture Days” that took place in the capital of Malta, Valetta in April 2018. 18 concerts were held within the “Armenian Culture Days” in Malta, during which the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra and the Maltese Philharmonic Orchestra performed. The concerts were dedicated to the 115th anniversary of Aram Khachaturian, to Tigran Mansurian, Armenian, Italian, Maltese and other composers. During the Armenian days, other branches of art were also presented: “Araks” Dance Ensemble from France fascinated the audience with Armenian dances, the films of Armenian directors were screened, and photos were exhibited devoted to Aram Khachaturian and Komitas. The photo exhibition “Khachkars” by Zaven Sargsyan fascinated the Maltese audience particularly.
