Old and New World Classical Collide

Performing Arts Center, San Luis Obispo l 8:00 p.m.
Conductor: Andrew Sewell
Soloist: Yolanda Kondonassis, harp

This concert features old world English and Latin variations. You’ll love the traditional German sound of Nicolai’s Merry Wives of Windsor Overture and German composer Franz Josef Haydn’s last symphony, his Symphony No. 104 in D major entitled “London.”

Yolanda Kondonassis, the world’s most recorded and Grammy nominated harpist, tackles the striking and rhythmic Harp Concerto, Op. 25 by Alberto Ginastera, an Argentine composer considered one the most important contemporary classical composers and teacher in Latin America. Come hear post-modern yearning in this first-ever harp solo in the organization’s history.
