Event Description

Ward Stare, Conductor
Yolanda Kondonassis, harp

BARBER Symphony No. 1 in One Movement, Op. 9
HIGDON Harp Concerto
HARLIN Rapture
COPLAND Suite from Rodeo
BERNSTEIN Divertimento  

Barber’s Symphony No. 1 synthesizes the traditional movements of a classical symphony into one single movement—a symphonic venture that is a creative outpouring teeming with drama and lyrical flourish. A perfect complement to Bernstein’s Divertimento, a piece that kicks off the RPO’s celebration of Bernstein’s Centennial this season. Harlin’s Rapture is the heart of a concert that highlights music’s unique power to carry us away. Following its May 2018 premiere, the RPO will present an encore performance of Jennifer Higdon’s Harp Concerto featuring Yolanda Kondonassis, to be recorded for the AZICA label.
