Harp virtuoso, Yolanda Kondonasis makes her debut with the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra. She is the leading exponent on the instrument both as performer and teacher with many recordings to date. The Harp Concerto by Alberto Ginastera explores the unique timbres and exotic sounds of this age-old instrument, in a beautifully crafted work. The Sinfonietta by Prokofiev contrasts his often jarring harmonies, with beautiful melody distinctive in his later ballet scores. Our journey concludes with Symphony No. 88 by Haydn, from his “storm and stress” middle period.
