I stumbled across this piece of prose today and loved it so…
I find the harp inspiring to listen too, so I hope you enjoy this video as much as I did.
“Harps are something of a curiosity, even to the other members of the orchestra: They’re huge and difficult to tune. So when Yolanda Kondonassis parked her giant and distinct Art Deco-inspired instrument behind the Tiny Desk, it had a powerful presence in the room.”
- Domenico Scarlatti: Sonata in A Major, K. 208
- Trad. Chinese/Arr. Kondonassis: Small River Flowing
- Carlos Salzedo: Chanson dans la nuit
Yolanda’s music is readily available on iTunes and other major music suppliers. I strongly recommend buying an album, mine gets plenty of play.
Hope you enjoyed today’s post. I love reading and responding to everyone’s comments, so feel free to leave a comment of your own.
