Anneleen Lenaerts:
Harp Recital

The sound of a charming musical instrument, by a world-class young musician.

Belgian harpist Anneleen Lenaerts—multi-award-winning Principal Harpist of the Vienna Philharmonic from the age of 23—in a programme with her own original transcriptions. A small tribute to the versatile personality of Clara Schumann for the 200th anniversary of her birth: her works are juxtaposed with compositions of her beloved husband Robert and Franz Liszt, another great Romantic and a family friend. Virtuosic compositions are transferred from the piano keys to the harp strings, with the clarinet of award-winning soloist and conductor Dionysis Grammenos replacing the voice or the oboe.
