Abstract: This year’s edition of the Valletta International Piano Festival brought a selection of music by Maltese composers to the fore in Tricia Dawn Williams’s concert entitled Piano Mosaic, held at the Music Room of St James Cavalier in Valletta. The opening work was Rhapsoidía by Pawlu Grech. Commissioned by the pianist Christodoulos Georgiades, Rhapsoidía was written in 1977, premiered at the University of Athens in 1979 and broadcast on Radio 3 (London) in 1980. Rhapsoidía comprises three sections, representing birth, death, and rebirth. It, therefore, deals with the transition across different forms of life, which is a key theme in Grech’s art. The outer sections refer to two Greek folk songs, although we do not encounter replicas of the original melodies.
