Xavier de Maistre, Harp
泽维尔·德·梅斯特: 竖琴王子


Latest Review:

I can't imagine a more persuasive performance than that by Xavier de Maistre, imaginatively exploiting what he dubs the "incomparably diaphanous sonorities" of a restored 18th-century pedal harp. Maistre's playing is a marvel of delicate colouring and shimmering, perfectly even passagework.

Recommended...above all for de Maistre's dazzling mastery of the instrument.

饮誉国际的法国竖琴大师梅斯特(Xavier de Maistre),德国回声大奖、美国国际竖琴大赛金牌得主、维也纳爱乐管弦乐团首席竖琴家。挟着「法国竖琴王子」的美名,高大俊朗的外形,才华洋溢的梅斯特早于二十五岁时便成为维也纳爱乐乐团的首位法国乐手,出道至今他的优美琴音风靡无数欧美及亚洲乐迷。

Unquestionably one of the world's top harpists, Xavier de Maistre is an exceptional musician who is redefining what is possible on and for his instrument. His appearances all over the globe with top conductors and orchestras, and highly sought after recitals with repertoire few harpists before him have even considered playing, have contributed to his reputation as one of the most creative and extraordinary musicians of his generation.

There is more to his playing than delicate, celestial sounds: Xavier de Maistre redefines with self-assurance the image of the harp, and in the meantime is one of the stars of the classical scene.
