Carlo Muscat Quintet in Valletta

Live music performance by Carlo Muscat Quintet in Great Siege Square, Valletta (entrance to St John’s Co-Cathedral).

The Carlo Muscat Quintet performs arrangements of lesser-known tunes from some of the most important jazz recordings of the 20th century. The group features Alex Bezzina on trumpet, Dominic Galea on piano/keyboard, Anthony Saliba on bass, Joseph Camilleri at the drums, and Carlo Muscat on saxophone.

Due to mitigation measures to combat COVID-19, you are kindly requested to send an email to info@vca.gov.mt to book your place for this event. Tickets are free of charge.

These musicians have been performing in various setups over the years, both locally and abroad, and have come together to develop a sound that best describes their musical background and approach. The idea behind the project is to experiment with a broader sound palette by getting creative with arrangements for two solo instruments, saxophone, and trumpet. This minor addition makes a very noticeable difference in the way tunes are approached since one must constantly keep in mind how both instruments are interacting and working each other.

Arrangements of important quintet recordings from 20th-century jazz albums are included throughout the set, serving as a learning process and experimentation in itself, analysing these arrangements and building upon them to create a sound that is unique to this quintet.

This event is part of the Valletta Cultural Agency’s Christmas in the City programme, taking place from the 8th till the 24th December in the main squares, strategic locations and the quaint streets of Valletta. Christmas lights and decorations can continue to be enjoyed throughout January.
