Rise of the Pleades

In the past an island of knights and pirates, and now one of the most cozy and picturesque corners of Europe, Malta is situated in the Mediterranean sea, to the south of Sicily. From ancient times, the rise of the Pleiades constellation in the sky in spring was thought to be a propitious omen for the beginning of navigation. A constellation of classical music stars in Valletta, the capital of the island republic, marks the beginning of a season of summer festivals across the Mediterranean.

A big celebration of music

The 9th Malta International Music Festival will take place between 26th April and 10th May 2020, featuring highly acclaimed world-famous musicians. MIMF 2020 offers a rich and varied programme including solo recitals, chamber concerts with the Primavera Chamber Orchestra (Tatarstan) and grand orchestral concerts with the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra at the Republic Hall of the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta, Robert Samut Hall in Floriana and the Russian Centre for Science and Culture in Valletta.

Events in the historical venues

The Grand Orchestra Concerts of the festival will take place in one of the oldest European buildings “Sacra Infermeria” (XVIth century), in which the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta is nowadays situated. The Chamber Orchestra concerts and Recitals will take place at the Robert Samut Hall in Floriana, one of the unique Maltese architectural structures of the XIXth century.
