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.

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.
