“The best musical of this century” (New York Times) return…
He’s back. Having charmed audiences on his critically acclaimed 2018 Brandenburg debut, internationally celebrated harpist Xavier de Maistre returns to star as soloist in Vivaldi’s Venice. Xavier’s evocative performances will sweep listeners along the bustling canals of Venice on a musical tour of the City of Bridges.
“[Xavier] captured the concerto’s appealing mix of virtuosic brilliance and elegant lyricism.” The Australian
★★★★ “elegant clarity, tapering and phrasing each idea with panache and drawing subtle variety from the harp's delicate tonal range.” Sydney Morning Herald
“Maistre by name, maestro by his ravishing performance. I hope that he comes back soon as he is not to be missed.” Sydney Arts Guide
Hear characteristic Venetian works including beloved concertos by Vivaldi performed as though for the very first time in masterful arrangements for harp and orchestra. Xavier, with his distinctly vibrant musical voice will impress upon audiences the shimmering light and colour of Venice.
For those who did not get the chance to see this inspiring performer in 2018, Xavier de Maistre will once more demonstrate why he is among the most sought-after soloists in the world.
