UNT College of Music
Guest Artist Recital
Sylvain Blassel is a world-renowned harpist and conductor. Keen to expand the repertoire available to him as a harpist, Sylvain Blassel has come to specialise in the virtuoso adaptation of music hitherto undreamt-of on the harp. He performs not simply transcriptions of digestible solos, but giants of the piano and orchestra repertoire. These span periods from Guillaume de Machaut to the present day, and include deep explorations of Bach, Beethoven, Haydn and Liszt. Sylvain Blassel is Professor of Harp at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, and at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Lyon. He is regularly invited to give masterclasses throughout the world: in New York, Tokyo, Toronto, Hong Kong, Hamburg, Berlin, Prague, Chicago, Seoul, Beijing, and Shanghai.
