R. Murray Schafer Theseus for Harp and String Quartet

 

Enjoy a free 45-minute performance by our talented Philharmonia Chamber Players and programmed by our Principal Harp, Heidi Krutzen.

In his long career, R. Murray Schafer composed several works with a prominent role for the harp. Their dramatic, descriptive nature and coloristic approach gives them considerable appeal, and his Theseus for Harp and String Quartet is no exception.

But first, enjoy Edgar Meyer's most recent composition, his Concert Duo for Bass and Violin. Hailed by The New Yorker as “…the most remarkable virtuoso”, Edgar Meyer has had a remarkable career not just as a composer but also as a performer. His compositions fuse elements of Bluegrass, Classical, and Jazz.

 

This concert is part of the Philharmonia Chamber Players series
