Watch: Discovering the music of Francesco Azopardi

During this week’s programme in Newsbook.com.mt‘s book-related series Between the Lines, Coryse Borg interviews Prof. Dion Buhagiar who speaks about his book ‘Francesco Azopardi 1748 – 1809 Maltese Classical Composer and Theorist’.

In the last few years, more interest and demand has been generated in performing the music of Francesco Azopardi. The book demonstrates Azopardi as a prolific composer who was in touch with the mainstream ideas of the most important European musical centres such as Naples, Paris and Monaco di Baviera (Munich), among other places. 

The book is published by Faraxa Publishing. More information may be obtained from Faraxa’s website or Facebook page.
