Description

The Valletta Baroque Ensemble and Malta's national choir Kor Malta perform Alessandro Stradella's oratorio San Giovanni Battista in the oratory of St John's Co-Cathedral under Caravaggio's iconic Beheading of St. John the Baptist, which is the artist’s largest and only signed masterpiece. Stradella's music blends opera and sacred drama, showcasing his liveliness, expressiveness, and profound humanity. Although premiered in 1675, the work was only rediscovered in 1949, with Maria Callas singing the role of Salome in Perugia.


Performers: ViBE and KorMalta dir. Riccardo Bianchi
