Two of today’s most innovative and recorded artists, Jason Vieaux, guitar and Yolanda Kondonassis, harp, join forces to present music of present and past. Original masterpieces and new commissions explore the unique combined sonorities of harp and guitar. Jason Vieaux has earned a reputation for putting his expressive gifts and virtuosity at the service of a remarkably wide range of music, and his schedule of concerto, recital, chamber music, teaching and recording commitments. Yolanda Kondonassis is celebrated as one of the world’s premier solo harpists and is widely regarded as today’s most recorded classical harpist. Hailed as “a brilliant and expressive player” (Dallas Morning News), she has performed around the globe as a concerto soloist and in recital, bringing her unique brand of musicianship and warm artistry to an ever-increasing audience.
