Following the enormous success of their album recorded on the Analekta label, Les Violons du Roy and harpist Valérie Milot present a previously unheard concert featuring the famous concertos for harp by Handel and Boieldieu as well as other masterworks of the baroque and classical repertoire.
This much-loved repertoire is seldom presented on tour to Quebec audiences.
Under the baton of conductor Mathieu Lussier, Valérie Milot delivers a breathtaking performance that redefines the limits of this enigmatic instrument. A palpable artistic chemistry infuses these unforgettable moments in the history of the harp, giving audiences a unique experience.
