Joined by Edward Powell (violin) and Karen Neary (piano), Phoebe Powell showcases the harp’s capacity to depict musical character, structure, and emotion with melodious eloquence and incisive contrapuntal clarity.
Along with her guests, Phoebe invites you to meet the five composers represented in this Neo-classically inspired programme:
-the delicately-ornamented conversation of C.Ph. E. Bach‘s Sonata in G for solo harp,
-the refined lyric passion of Massenet‘s Meditation from Thais for violin and harp,
-the witty, melancholic joie-de-vivre of Tailleferre‘s Sonate for solo harp,
-the bold percussiveness of John Weinzweig‘s Quarks for solo harp,
-and the alternately lush and puckish moods of Debussy‘s seductive Danses sacrées et profanes for harp and piano!
This concert is the final performance in a series of six performances this season by Emerging Young Artists presented with the generous support of the Harry and Martha Cohen Foundation.
