Gisèle has been an active recitalist from a young age and has performed in Malta, Sicily, South-West France, Finland, Iceland, Germany, Syria and in major cities around the UK. She has established strong musical collaborations, both locally and internationally, including principal members of the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra. She is in demand as a recital performer in her home country Malta and is known by many critics and audiences alike as an “intelligent and sensitive performer” (The Sunday Times, Malta).
Her recital programmes are carefully devised to please, suit and work in different performance settings. Gisèle believes in bringing classical music to varying audiences and often her recitals are delivered with the inclusion of dialogue by means of interjectory comments or other relevant information. She strongly feels this complements her performances and ultimately invites audiences to listen and enjoy the music better.
Gisèle is available for the following recitals in solo or chamber musical set-ups:
- Public Recitals
- Private Recitals
- Lecture Recitals
- Recitals for Children (ideally aged 6 upwards)
Gisèle has had extensive experience as accompanist on the performing stage. She regularly collaborates with professional vocalists and instrumentalists and has performed around various venues in Malta and overseas. She has been privileged to receive lieder training from the renowned song accompanist Julius Drake and chamber tuition from pianist Ian Brown.
Apart from recitals, Gisèle is also available to accompany any instrumentalists who are sitting for an examination of any board. These sessions may also include aural test training, an important requirement in all board examinations. It is strongly advised that this section is not left to the last minute to develop. Students in need of an accompanist and aural training skills sessions are asked to contact Gisèle at least 3 months prior to the examination period.
