A welcome return for Adriano Sangineto, the popular Italian clarsach player to the 43rd Edinburgh International Harp Festival (George Watson’s College Edinburgh EH10 5EG).

He will perform his Arpa Creativa show with the clarsach becoming an extension of his exuberant personality. His own lively compositions set hands and feet irresistibly moving demonstrating the percussive nature of the instrument and expanding its rhythmic and harmonic capabilities.

Born and raised in his father’s workshop, Adriano’s growth as a musician was influenced by the presence of such leading figures as Alan Stivell, Carlos Nunez, Chieftains and others. His love for folk instruments has led him to become an eclectic musician, expressing himself through various musical genres. He also revisits Italian and European folk music with original arrangements. Adriano specialised in clarinet and classical composition at the Conservatoire of Milan and taught himself how to play the Celtic harp. Thanks to this background, he composes songs for a variety of purposes: soundtracks, music for theatre plays and advertisements.

Adriano Sangineto will be conducting two courses. The first course will focus on exploring the rhythmic possibilities of the harp, while developing rhythmic and harmonic awareness that is vital for playing dance music. On the second one, he will explore the role of the harp as a leading instrument of harmony in early music, the so-called “continuo”.
