Xavier de Maistre is generally fêted as the artist who has managed to liberate the harp from its reputation for wonderful but very soft sounds, and establish it as a solo instrument in the concert hall. On his album "Notte Veneziana", the internationally successful harp virtuoso plays well-known concertos by the Venetian composers Vivaldi, Marcello and Albinoni in new arrangements, combining them with original compositions for solo harp such as the sonata by Giovanni Pescetti, Godefroid’s stunning set of variations on the popular tune “Carnaval de Venise”, and “La Mandoline” by 19th-century composer Elias Parish Alvars.

Nel condurre alcune ricerche nell'archivio del vecchio Ospedale della Pietà di Venezia, Lucio, un giovane violinista spagnolo, si imbatte in una partitura che sembra di Vivaldi. Si tratta di un'opera inusuale, a tratti sgradevole e incomprensibile, saggio forse di quella "musica del diavolo" proibita severamente dalla chiesa del tempo. Da ulteriori ricerche Lucio viene a sapere dell'esistenza di una setta detta "Fraternitas Charitatis" che aveva lo scopo di custodire e tramandare conoscenze eterodosse o eretiche. Ben presto Lucio, con l'aiuto della fidanzata, scopre l'affiliazione di Vivaldi alla confraternita ed è indotto a pensare che la partitura nasconda un messaggio tanto importante quanto pericoloso che i due intendono scoprire. Ma non sono i soli…
