Joseph Vella Ħaġar Qim, Opus 25

The MPO celebrates Public Service Week with a work by eminent Maltese composer Joseph Vella. Featuring MPO Principal players Rebecca Hall, John McDonough and Daniel Cauchi, the performance filmed at the Neolithic Temples seeks to capture Malta’s rich cultural heritage.  

The opening bongos solo sets the primeval scene of this short ballet, with an ensuing pastoral atmosphere conveyed by the oboe and the flute.  After the frenzied sacrificial ceremony introduced by the anxious percussive rhythms, serenity returns prior to a final joyful thanksgiving dance.
