About the Concert

Join us for an enchanting evening with the Hathor Duo, featuring flautist Meera Maharaj and harpist Lucy Nolan. This concert, titled "Dreams and Fantasies", promises to transport you through a rich and varied repertoire.

The programme opens with the elegant Sonata in G minor by J.S. Bach, exemplifying Baroque sophistication of interplay and expressive depth. Following this, you will be introduced to the lyrical Sonata for Flute and Harp in E flat major by Joseph Bologne, Guadaloupe/French Classical composer, conductor and virtuoso violinist whose works are celebrated for their grace and vivacity.

Experience the evocative landscapes of Hamilton Harty's "In Ireland", a piece that paints a picture of the Irish countryside with passion, vivacity and dance. Saint-Saëns’ Fantaisie, Op. 124, composed for violin and harp, will captivate you with its lyrical beauty and virtuosic demands. The Hathor Duo conclude with Ravel's hauntingly beautiful "Pavane pour une infante défunte", a balance of melancholy and grace.
