Harpsichord en fête
7th & 9th March
The Institut français d’Ecosse presents Edinburgh’s first-ever international harpsichord festival: Harpsichord en fête.
From March 7th to the 12th, we invite you to participate in a week-long celebration of the harpsichord and baroque music.
On March 7th, the festival’s opening concert will be performed by Paolo Zanzu, an Italian harpsichordist with very European credentials. With his virtuosity and his liveliness, Paolo will focus on the period from the late 17th century to the mid-18th century, featuring compositions by Bach, Babell, Handel, and Scarlatti.
