Oliver Wass (harp)

Oliver Wass studied at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and is the only harpist ever to win the Guildhall Gold Medal, the Guildhall’s most prestigious prize. Previous winners include Jacqueline du Pré and Bryn Terfel. He has performed all the major harp concertos, including Lyra Angelica with the Philharmonia Orchestra, Mozart’s Flute and Harp Concerto at Wigmore Hall, and has directed Handel’s Harp Concerto in B flat in the Barbican Hall. He has won international competitions in Italy, Hungary and the UK.

In this recital, Oliver will perform Prokofiev’s only work for solo harp, the sparkling Prelude in C, alongside Debussy’s most famous and magical work, Clair de Lune, and Posse’s colourful The Carnival of Venice Variations.
