ANDREW MANZE - Conductor
XAVIER DE MAISTRE - Harp 

Mozart’s Concerto in F major, K459, played on the harp? De Maistre’s transcription produces such a wide range of colour and dynamics so elegantly, that you may be quickly persuaded into thinking this an original harp concerto.

The concert kicks off with another tenacious battle for good in the overture to Weber’s mystical opera about a hunter’s pact with the devil. After the interval, a UK Premiere of The Magic Harp, first performed in 1820! With the libretto now lost, Professor Brian Newbould has reconstructed the music into an orchestral suite packed with supernatural elements and melodrama.
