Le Siècle des Lumières - The Age of Enlightenment
‘Les Bougies Baroques’
Join Les Bougies Baroques as they illuminate the path to the age of enlightenment, perhaps one of humanity’s most glorious periods, and what better way to celebrate this than with the music of much-loved composers of the second half of the eighteenth century such as Mozart, Haydn, and Gluck? The concert will also feature an instrumental work by Maltese composer Francesco Azopardi.
