Joseph Debrincat triumphs in Albania!

The programme’s repertoire included Joseph Vella’s symphonic poem ‘Ir-Rebbieħa’, Edward Grieg’s ‘Concerto for Piano in A Minor’ (Op. 16) interpreted by pianist Silvana Skenderi, and Dvorak’s Symphony no.9 (in E minor). It is interesting to note that Silvana Skenderi has accompanied some world renowed singers like Joseph Gjipali and Kestrel Asllani in various cities around Europe.

The concert, which received a lovely dose of press coverage in Albania and various parts of Europe, was widely acclaimed by its local and national audiences. Multiple interviews by local and national television stations were conducted, featuring the active members of the symphonic orchestra and, as befit the occasion, Joseph Debrincat.

Locally, Joseph Debrincat is not only one of the resident band members and Assistant Director of the Leone Philharmonic Society, but he is also the founder and music / artistic director of the Classique Foundation. The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra has performed under the baton of Joseph Debrincat multiple times for a series of concerts by the Classique Foundation since being founded in 2000. The last string of The Grand Operatic Concert editions by the foundation ave all been held at the Teatru tal-Opra Aurora. Debrincat also serves as a backstage musical conductor and a trusted musical advisor during the Teatru tal-Opra Aurora opera productions. He also sits on the opera administrative committee.


The Leone Philharmonic Society and Teatru tal-Opra Aurora would like to heavily appraise and compliment Joseph Debrincat for yet another national and international success, while also wishing him all the best for prospective future plans.
