ORCHESTRA OF THE SWAN - Close Encounters of the Harp Kind

Mar 14 2019 20:00 - 22:00

Shakespeare St Cocktal Bar, 1 Shakespeare St, CV37 6RN Stratford upon Avon

David Le Page - violin/director

Eleanor Turner - harp

If you think you know the harp and what harpists like... then think again! OOTS teams up with Eleanor Turner (head of harp at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire) for a programme featuring some of the finest repertoire written for the instrument. The centrepiece of the evening is Ravel’s jaw-dropping septet with its beguiling combination of beauty and dazzling virtuosity. Works by Debussy and Saint-Säens also feature as well as compositions by Eleanor herself. Visceral, entertaining and unexpected.
