This free concert on a Stradivari violin will explore the underlying relationship between music, mathematics and the architecture of Valletta.

While stone facades and musical compositions seem unrelated, the geometry used to construct many of Valletta’s historic buildings incorporate similar patterns to those found in music. The concert, organised by The European Graduate School (EGS) as part of their spring series of seminars, will explore these interrelationships.

Gilles Colliard, musical director of the Toulouse Chamber Orchestra and the Barcelona Baroque Orchestra, will perform solo violin repertoire from Bach and Biber.

This concert will be held on Tuesday, April 11, at St James Cavalier at 3.30pm.
