Whoever says harp, says Lavinia Meijer. She's one of the best harpists in the world. Great composers, such as Philip Glass, admire the way in which she manages to translate repertoire not originally written for the harp to this instrument. In the Edesche Concert Hall she joins forces with pianist Feico Deutekom. Together they play a selection from Glass' music for the film 'Candyman'. But there's more on the program. Also 'Amelie' and 'The Piano' are films that have all become blockbusters. The same goes for the music. Anyone who can play the piano a bit has played the famous melody by Yann Thiersen from 'Amelie'. Lavinia and Feico play it on harp and piano.
Pianist Feico Deutekom on Philip Glass:
"I've played quatre mains with him several times. Nice, but exciting. Glass loves surprise and adventure. He doesn't shrink from thinking up something new half an hour before a performance, which still needs to be rehearsed quickly"
