Overview

Tragedy never sounded so beautiful

Conductor Diego Matheuz
Soloist Marie-Pierre Langlamet, harp

Ginastera Concerto for Harp and Orchestra
Prokofiev Romeo and Juliet Suite

Ginastera’s Concerto illustrates the harp’s rich versatility as a sound-maker. Musically, the score shifts between tunefulness and dissonance while blistering rhythms alternate with rhapsodic interludes. The first and third movements draw from the Argentinian ‘Malambo’, a visceral gaucho dance noted for foot stamping. Listen for the sound pictures in Prokofiev’s sweeping Romeo and Juliet Suite originally conceived as a ballet. Theatrical, the romantic score is studded with musical imagery – sword fights, Romeo’s skittish puppy and plush melodies portraying the tragic lovers.
