Join the young harpist Anna Quiroga for a rare performance of the Concerto for harp and electronics, by Israeli composer Josef Tal. As part of the concert series ‘From the Soundhouse’, the performance will be hosted by Michael Oliva, on Monday 15th February at the Royal College of Music in London. It will also be the opening event of the Harp Week at the RCM, organized by head of harp, Ieuan Jones.
This will be one of the very few performances of the Concerto, which was premiered in UK by the world renowned harpist Nicanor Zabaleta, to whom it was dedicated in 1972. The concerto is one of Tal’s first works with electronic music, with the aim of exploring a combination between one of the oldest instruments in history and the avant-garde.
