The amazing harpist Yolanda Kondonassis recently released a new album “Ginastera: One Hundred,” which is a centennial celebration of composer Alberto Ginastera. The recording features collaborations with guitarist Jason Vieaux, violinist Gil Shaham and pianist Orli Shaham.
I recently sat down to have a conversation with Yolanda and we discussed Ginastera’s work and contribution to the harp repertoire. She also talks about how she approaches each new project and how teaching influences her performances.
Enjoy the excerpts from our chat...
Yours in good music,
