With this new concert, Valérie showcases her ninth album Solo, in which she adapted her favourite classical music pieces for the harp. Paganini, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Elgar, Mahler, Tarrega, Bach and Henry resonate through Apollonia; a rare and precious Salvi harp.
“Solo is the culmination of a process of introspection during which I delved more deeply into my connection to my instrument. Through transcriptions, I redefined my relationship with the harp’s technical possibilities and focused on translating its musical gestures, beyond the notes. This exercise further developed my interpretive approach to the works, which was very constructive.” Valérie is aware that these adaptations allow her to reach out to more people and demystify the harp and its universe.
