The recital will feature works by Spohr, the great 19th century violinist whose wife was a renowned harpist, Donizetti’s beautiful ‘Larghetto and Allegro’, English Folk Songs arranged by the doyenne of modern harp playing, Skaila Kanga, and the most iconic piece for this combination, Saint Saens’ ‘Fantasie’. Charming melodies, operatic quotations, well-loved tunes and virtuosic fireworks – a programme that will show this magical pairing of instruments at its best.
