London Harp Concert

Anyone familiar with Bruce Broughton’s concert works will recognize two of the three works to be performed: “Tyvek Wood,” a trio for flute, viola and harp; and “Toccata” for two harps and mallet percussion. The third, however, has been commissioned for this concert and will be enjoying its world premiere. “Dancing for Love, Dancing for the Gods” is a harp quartet inspired by a disparaging remark made by the legendary and often controversial American dancer, Isadora Duncan, about the dancers at the Paris Opera in 1900: “They do not dance for love. They do not dance for the Gods.” For the complete program notes, click here.
