Tragedy never sounded so beautiful
Conductor Diego MatheuzSoloist Marie-Pierre Langlamet, harp
Rossini William Tell OvertureGinastera Concerto for Harp and OrchestraProkofiev Romeo and Juliet Suite
The William Tell Overture’s driving force conjures cavalry horses galloping at reckless speed. 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.
