    Mercadante  Sinfonia extracted from I due Figaro
    Boieldieu  Concerto for harp
    Cherubini  Symphony in D major

    For this stellar evening on the borders of France and Italy at the cusp of the 18th and 19th centuries, we experience the surprising rediscovery of I due Figaro by Mercadante – a score from 1835 uncovered in 2009 by musicologists – the only symphony by Cherubini, under the influence of Haydn, and the famous Concerto for harp by the composer of La Dame blanche, an iconic work of late 18th century classical elegance. These works will enjoy the benefit of two peerless guides: Italian conductor Speranza Scappucci, who made her debut at La Scala Milan in 2022, and Xavier de Maistre, the first French musician to join the ranks of the Vienna Philharmonic, who has made it his mission to place his instrument centre-stage.

    La harpe, un instrument… divin !

    Elégante, raffinée, imposante, mystérieuse, onirique : quand il s’agit d’évoquer la harpe, les adjectifs sont légion...
