Xavier de Maistre (harp)

l’arte del mondo, Werner Ehrhardt (Artistic Director)

Today’s leading virtuoso of the harp presents famous Baroque concerti by Albinoni, Marcello and Vivaldi in unique new arrangements.

“A selection of wonderful Baroque concerti by Venetian composers, like Marcello, Albinoni and Vivaldi – arranged for my instrument. In his famous “Winter” from The Four Seasons, the glass-like sounds of the harp create an ethereal mood astonishingly reproducing snowflakes and splintering icicles. So all these fantastic pieces which everyone knows suddenly seem fresh and new, and can be rediscovered thanks to the very special sound of the harp.” Xavier de Maistre

Xavier de Maistre is generally fêted as the artist who has managed to liberate the harp from its reputation for wonderful but very soft sounds, and establish it as a solo instrument in the concert hall.

On his new album "Notte Veneziana", the internationally successful harp virtuoso plays well-known concertos by the Venetian composers Vivaldi, Marcello and Albinoni in new arrangements, combining them with original compositions for solo harp such as the sonata by Giovanni Pescetti, Godefroid’s stunning set of variations on the popular tune “Carnaval de Venise”, and “La Mandoline” by 19th-century composer Elias Parish Alvars.

Xavier de Maistre's aim is to make the listener forget completely that most of the Baroque concertos heard here were not originally written for the harp, but for different melody instruments. He finds it fascinating to bring out new timbres in the arrangements, some of which he pens himself. Vivaldi's famous concerto "Winter", in particular, seems to him to be predestined for playing on the harp, and his interpretation does indeed present this often-heard work in a totally new guise.

“Xavier de Maistre is a virtuoso of the highest order, profoundly musical and capable of realizing a remarkable range of nuance.” (Gramophone)

“This is a delightful collection. Xavier Maistre plays the harp with infinite finesse and much delicacy of colour. He offers four Vivaldi concertos and makes them sound as if they were actually written for the harp, with slow movements particularly enticing...the appeal of the performance rests as much on delicate simplicity as extrovert bravura.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2012

“This is a superb display of harp-playing at its best. At one extreme, the so-called 'Albinoni Adagio'...displays astonishingly warm harp tone, fingers barely caressing strings - indulgently sentimental and pure magic.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2012 *****

London Mozart Players

Brilliant, unconventional and vain, it was Antonio Vivaldi’s boast that he could compose a complete concerto in less time than it took to copy out the parts.

Ordained as a clergyman, he sported a head of flaming red hair that earned him the sobriquet ‘The red priest’. As a composer and virtuoso violinist he was famed throughout Europe.

Aitor Hevia (solo violin), Theo Bleckmann (vocal) & Uri Caine (piano)

Forma Antiqva, Aarón Zapico

Digital Recording at Auditorio Manuel de Falla (Forma Antiqva), Granada, Spain, July 2011

Digital Recording at Sear Sound (Theo Bleckmann and Uri Caine), NYC, USA, September 2011

Aarón Zapico and his baroque ensemble, Forma Antiqva, interpret Vivaldi’s concertos with an entirely new approach, on period instruments. Aitor Hevia (violin) slips into various leading parts, mimics birds, a farmer’s boy, from who the storm wants to steal the annual harvest, becomes the game being hunted to death and blusters like freezing wind over the frozen land. Vivaldi, who was born during an earthquake, creates four episodes, each in three parts, corresponding with his poems.

Theo Bleckmann and Uri Caine compose these sonnets and present here as a première recording ‘The Four Seasons Sonnets’: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Bleckmann and Caine act as the narrators for Vivaldi’s AudioFilm. The Dutch painter and concept artist Marcel van Eeden is inspired by Zapico’s ‘Four Seasons’ and creates for this musical cycle eight new drawings.
