A romantic evening in a century old Cathedral. Organ and two harps present our favourite never boring classical pieces.

The harp’s voice is so beautiful, that even the wind can play it instead of man. Such istruments are called Aeolian harps. But an ordinary harp is also capable of creating a fantastic atmosphere. And how about two harps? They produce an impression similar to that of the songs of birds of paradise over a limitless ocean of which we are reminded by the philosophical depth of organ accords.

The programme includes Boccherini’s exquisite Fandango,  Offenbach’s famous Barcarola from “The Tales of Hoffmann”, organ pieces by Bach and Pachelbel and a fresh version of Joaquin Rodrigo’s “Concierto de Aranjuez”, with the harp playing the part of the guitar.
