Xavier de Maistre is generally fêted as the artist who has managed to liberate the harp from its reputation for wonderful but very soft sounds, and establish it as a solo instrument in the concert hall.

On his album "Notte Veneziana", the internationally successful harp virtuoso plays well-known concertos by the Venetian composers Vivaldi, Marcello and Albinoni in new arrangements, combining them with original compositions for solo harp such as the sonata by Giovanni Pescetti, Godefroid’s stunning set of variations on the popular tune “Carnaval de Venise”, and “La Mandoline” by 19th-century composer Elias Parish Alvars.

Xavier de Maistre's aim is to make the listener forget completely that most of the Baroque concertos heard here were not originally written for the harp, but for different melody instruments. He finds it fascinating to bring out new timbres in the arrangements, some of which he pens himself. Vivaldi's famous concerto "Winter", in particular, seems to him to be predestined for playing on the harp, and his interpretation does indeed present this often-heard work in a totally new guise.

This is a delightful collection. Xavier de Maistre plays the harp with infinite finesse and much delicacy of colour. He offers four Vivaldi concertos and makes them sound as if they were actually written for the harp, with slow movements particularly enticing.

As he says in his note, ‘the glass-like sounds in Winter from The Four Seasons create an ethereal mood astonishingly reproducing snowflakes and splintering icicles’. The Marcello Concerto, although more robust, is no less winning, especially its gossamer Adagio. The name of Elias Parish Alvars is unfamiliar to me but his grande fantaisie is as captivating on the harp as on the mandolin for which it was written. The Albinoni Adagio is an arrangement of an arrangement but is enhanced by its intimacy. Xavier de Maistre’s own transcription of Giovanni Pescetti’s Sonata also floats by the ear engagingly. To close the programme, Félix Godefroid’s variations on the Carnaval de Venise offer plenty of opportunities for virtuosity but once again the appeal of the performance rests as much on delicate simplicity as extrovert bravura.

Throughout, L’Arte del Mondo, directed by Werner Ehrhardt, provide accompaniments of much finesse and vigour, and the balance (in the Bayer Kulturhaus, Leverkusen) has been expertly managed by the producer, Erich Hofmann. If you enjoy the harp, this CD is very recommendable indeed.
