Kurt Aquilina is representing Malta this year in Eurovision Young Musicians. Kurt is the first ever Young Musicians entrant for Malta and will be performing on the classical guitar.

In the pre-round on Monday Kurt performed three pieces which were: August Lullaby by Mark Mancina and arranged by Per Olov Kindgren, Gallop by Fernando Sor and Swing Thing by Nick Powlesland. For Saturday’s final Kurt will perform the second adagio movement of Joaquin Rodrigo’s Concerto D’Aranguez with the WDR Symphony Orchestra under the baton of our conductor Kristiina Poska.

We spoke to Kurt after his pre-round and before his orchestral rehearsal to find out more about the man behind the guitar as he tells us about his passion for guitar, his experiences in the contest and his hopes for the future.
