Xavier de Maistre is one of the most sought-after soloists in the world, and is constantly pushing boundaries, bravely forging his own path.
Xavier’s performances of his own inspiring arrangements let the harp sing with a distinctive new voice. His technical mastery unlocks highly expressive performances marked by an astonishing range of nuance and colour, creating magical connections with the audience. His undeniable passion for the instrument allows this charismatic virtuoso to create inner worlds of exquisite sensitivity, filled with light and shade.
This buoyant program is breathtaking and beautiful and includes some of the most popular works of all time including the Brandenburg’s first performance of a work by French impressionist Ravel.
