Eki t’Eki / Echoes of Echoes (2016) is an art song for soprano, flute and harp set to words by Maltese poet Glen Calleja. The poem speaks of personal discovery, and of confronting one’s own self. The work is split into two sections, reflecting the structure of the poem itself. The flute acts as an alter-ego to the soprano, with the harp providing a constant support.
The piece was premiered by the brilliant young Maltese soprano Francesca Aquilina, together with flautist Laura Cioffi and harpist Caroline Muscat. This work is a Malta Arts Festival commission and was premiered on Tuesday 12th July at the Fortress Builders Interpretation Centre, Valletta as part of the Malta International Arts Festival 2016.
