A Recital for Voice and Harp
9th & 10th December
Very much looking forward to working once again with harpist Valeria Kurbatova following our performance at the BAFTA Games Awards show earlier year. Our recital, Cantique de Noël, at the Kino-Teatr, St Leonards-on-sea, is full of favourite festive pieces, mesmerising harp solos and songs that dream of white Christmases and starry winter skies. The diverse programme featuring Schubert’s Ave Maria, Howard Blake’s The Snowman, Tchaikovsky’s Sugar Plum Fairy and some of the most atmospheric songs from Strauss, Schubert, Debussy and Faure, reflects the long nights, dreamy snowscapes and joyful Christmas tales of winter.
Valeria and I had such fun working together for BAFTA and we are looking forward to furthering our duo with this recital, the setting of the Kino Teatr lends itself to a particularly intimate environment and we feel it is going to be a special concert.
A graduate of the Royal College of Music, Russian harpist Valeria Kurbatova has appeared at the Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Palace, The Barbican, The Forge & Wigmore Hall. She has won many awards including the 1st prize at the International Harp Competition in Moscow and is a principal performer with the London Electronic Orchestra.
