HARPON

Friday - - SLICE OF LIFE -

French harpist Xavier de Maistre is per­form­ing at the Bin Hamoodah Fort in Al Ain to­day as part of the Abu Dhabi Clas­sics 2018/19 sea­son. Con­sid­ered as the artist solely re­spon­si­ble for mak­ing the harp pop­u­lar once again, De Maistre has al­bums that have made it to the top of the clas­si­cal mu­sic charts and earned him nu­mer­ous awards in­clud­ing ‘In­stru­men­tal­ist of the Year at the pres­ti­gious Echo Klas­sik Awards 2009. His show to­day will see him strum through a pro­gramme in­spired by Span­ish clas­si­cal mu­sic with Im­pres­sion­ist and Modernist ac­cents as well as com­po­si­tions by French com­posers De­bussy and Fauré.
