A Festive Smash for Voice & Harp
Soprano Sophie Pullen and Russian harpist Valeria Kurbatova present a candlelit Christmas concert with Kino- Teatr. Following their debut performance at the BAFTA Games Awards this year the duo come together to perform a programme of favourite festive pieces, mesmerising harp solos and songs that dream of white Christmases and starry winter skies. A diverse programme featuring Schubert’s Ave Maria, Howard Blake’s The Snowman, Tchaikovsky’s Sugar Plum Fairy and great melodies from Liszt, with the odd jingle bell thrown in for good measure! Come join us for a hearty dose of Christmas cheer! As soloists they have appeared variously at the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Opera House, Kensington Palace, The Barbican, The Forge, Warwick Arts Centre, Southwark Cathedral, Leighton House, Cadogan Hall & Wigmore Hall. Valeria has won many awards including the 1st prize at the International Harp Competition in Moscow and is a principal performer with the London Electronic Orchestra. Sophie Pullen enjoys an eclectic singing career and is currently studying on English National Opera’s prestigious Operaworks course. Invited to sing together by BAFTA the young musicians look forward to furthering their partnership.
