“International Language of Music” exhibition comprised of the photos from archive and permanent exhibition of the House-Museum of Khachaturian is a key event this year which marks the 115th anniversary of Aram Khachaturian. This year is doubly jubilee for us, as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the founding of the House-Museum. It is very important that this year the museum was able to show its exposition in such a beautiful country as Malta and Valetta, which is declared the European Capital of Culture this year.
The title of “International Language of Music” exhibition corresponds to the spirit of the festival, since music does not need translation, music passes on from heart to heart, from soul to soul.
As to the Malta International Festival, this large-scale event has become annual and traditional holiday, and this is proved by the names of world stars participating in the event.
