Deep Summer Music
Harp Concerto, op. 25
Allegra Lilly, harp
Symphony No. 7 in A Major
While many consider the harp a delicate, ethereal instrument, Argentinian composer Ginastera broke the mold with his Harp Concerto, commissioned by the first female musician in the Philadelphia Orchestra, Edna Phillips. Allegra Lilly, Principal Harp of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, joins LexPhil as soloist to bring the full color of this versatile instrument to life. The evening opens with Grammy-award winning composer Libby Larsen’s Deep Summer Music, inspired by the languid last days of summer in her home state of Minnesota. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 brings the evening to a joyous and boisterous close.
