The February performance in Cecilia Concerts’ Sensory-Accessible Concerts series, presented in partnership with the Halifax Central Library, brings host, curator, and pianist Jennifer King together with harpist Ellen Gibling for an afternoon of enchanting music featuring various harps and piano.
Come hear Parisian composer Marcel Tournier’s “Vers la source dans le bois,” a tranquil and peaceful work inspired by nature, the expressive second movement of Giovanni Battista Pescetti’s Sonata in C minor, Sergei Prokofiev’s lively and sparkling Prelude in C major, op.12 no.7, as well as Spanish composer Joaquin Turina’s Theme and Variations, op.100 for harp and piano. The first movement of French Canadian Caroline Lizotte’s Suite Galactique “Exosphere” will transport you to the outer reaches of space with its cosmic sounds, and you will be treated to a traditional Irish slow air called “Port na bPúcaí” as well as a lively Irish jig set sure to get your toes tapping.
