Lavinia Meijer goes classic!

Lavinia Meijer

Lavinia Meijer and the Edesche Concert Hall belong together. For five years now, Lavinia has performed one or more times every season. Experience an atmospheric get-together with Lavinia Meijer, one of the best harpists in the world. In two unique solo recitals, Lavinia returns to her classic roots!


Debussy and Satie

For Lavinia it all started with Debussy's music. For the young Lavinia his pieces were the gems of the existing harp repertoire. Lavinia shows that she also knows what to do with Debussy's piano music on the harp in the well-known piece Claire de lune. Under her hands it sounds like it's always been a harp piece. The same goes for the atmospheric Gnossiennes of Debussy's contemporary √Črik Satie. Although more than a century old, it is also very much music of today, because the pieces often appear in movies.


Ludovico Einaudi

Through the music of Debussy and Satie, Lavinia Meijer ended up with the Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi. Just like Lavinia's other idol Philip Glass, Einaudi wrote little for the harp, but he immediately became enthusiastic when he heard the harp versions Lavinia had made of his music. Dream away on the atmospheric sounds of Einaudi's greatest hits including Nuvole bianche.

"A harp can sound like a whole orchestra, but it can also be light and refined," says Lavinia Meijer about her favourite instrument. In the Edesche Concert Hall, Lavinia exposes her classical roots. "My roots are in classical music, but at the same time I want to show what else is possible." In an intimate setting, Lavinia plays picturesque atmospheric pieces like Debussy's Claire de lune or Satie's Gnossiennes. The harpist also plays music by Ludovico Einaudi, from her successful album Passaggio. Lavinia all the way!
