„What the angels play in heaven...“ − A harp matinee

The harp is one of the oldest instruments of all. Even the biblical story of David, whose heavenly harp playing even brightened the mind of the depressed King Saul, talks of the instrument. Perhaps this is why the harp became a popular attribute in the portrayal of angels, right up to Ludwig Thoma’s “Münchner im Himmel”. What is certain is that the harp is one of the heaviest instruments of all – it weighs 35 to 40 kilos – and that it is one of the most decorative ones. And what can’t be done with its musically! It can produce arpeggios, glissandi and flageoletts, evoke the sound of the wind or the trickle of water with magical sounds. Marie-Pierre Langlamet, harpist of the Berliner Philharmoniker, will present all facets of her harp at this matinee: an instrument of unlimited possibilities.

Gäste werden um einen Unkostenbeitrag von nicht weniger als 20 € pro Person (Kinder 10 €) gebeten.
