Public Concert 1

A WORLD OF HARPS

Sun 26 July 2020, 7.30pm
Donald Gordon Theatre

Wales Millennium Centre

There are harps of every shape and size in every corner of the world, and many are a
symbol of their country’s heritage and culture, as the instrument is here in Wales. This concert will
celebrate all these wonderful instruments, the performers who play them, and the music they
create. Featuring Calan (pictured), Maya Youssef, Sura Susso and Leonard Jacome.

SAT 25 JUL 2020 

It's a spectacular opening day of the Congress which includes recitals from two renowned soloists Sivan Magen and Emmanuel Ceysson, a historical harp ensemble featuring Andrew Lawrence-King, World Music from Turkey, Tunisia, Scotland and Senegal, seven diverse lectures, and the Opening Party showcasing the talents of Gwyneth Wentink (pictured), Remy van Kesteren and Nikolaz Cadoret.

 

SUN 26 JUL 2020 

Today, delight in Maria Luisa Rayan and Marcela Mendez’s performance of Bach’s Goldberg Variations for two harps and enjoy some jazz with Tara Minton (pictured), Milena Hoge and Stina Hellberg-Agback. Be enchanted by wonderful Viennese dancers, before popping down to Wales Millennium Centre for a massed harp event followed by a celebration of diverse world harps from China, Japan, Syria, Venezuela, Paraguay, West Africa and, of course, Wales.

 

MON 27 JUL 2020 

Come and try your hand at Latin American rhythms with Alfredo Rolando Ortiz (pictured) or join a clarsach ensemble; experience the music of Salzedo with Alice Giles or be amazed by the ingenuity of Rhodri Davies; learn about the triple harp of Wales or be delighted by a harp extravaganza featuring over 60 young harpists from Singapore; not forgetting Letizia Belmondo’s Caramiello recital. The choice is endless! Then join us in the evening to hear the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Anneleen Lenearts perform the Gliere Harp Concerto as well as Catrin Finch premiering a new concerto by Composer-in-Residence Sally Beamish.

 

TUE 28 JUL 2020 

The Congress continues with the Focus on Youth platform and massed harp ensembles, together with performances by Naoko Yoshino (pictured) and Marie-Pierre Langlamet and Gypsy jazz with Christina Lutz. There are lectures by Mara Galassi and Fabrice Pierre, plus an opportunity to hear the Kantele and the Tyrolean harp. In the evening there’s a tempting choice between an orchestral concert of double harp concertos with a roll call of some of some of the world’s finest players, or an evening of jazz legends featuring, amongst others, Park Stickney and Pia Salvia.

 

WED 29 JUL 2020 

A day of eclectic and thrilling events including a Beethoven recital from Sylvain Blassel, Chamber music throughout the day, workshops given by Park Stickney, and Robin Huw Bowen on the Welsh triple harp, while Alina Bzhezhinska (pictured) and Marcella Carboni bring some jazz flavour to the day. In the most perfect setting of St Fagans, you can enjoy an evening of folk music. Explore the fascinating history and architecture of Wales over the years, while sampling a selection of Celtic music, dance and verse, and finish the evening in true Welsh style with a traditional ‘twmpath’.

 

THU 30 JUL 2020 

A fabulous final day to round off the Congress in true celebratory style with a recital from Maria Krushevskaya, jazz vibes with a recital and workshop with Motoshi Kosaka, Kimberley Rowe interviews Susann McDonald and Linda Wood, and Florence Sitruk gives a masterclass on the Mozart Concerto. Sir Bryn Terfel joins Alexander Boldachev (pictured) for an Operatic Gala Closing Concert which also stars no fewer than six Royal Harpists and a surprise ensemble!
