Gwyneth Wentink and the Boston Philharmonic in Concert

Comments

The Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Benjamin Zander welcome the Dutch harpist Gwyneth Wentink as soloist in Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera's Harp Concerto.  One reviewer wrote of this performance, "Gwyneth Wentink and Boston Philharmonic penetrated profoundly into the unusual space of this improbable concerto, both running away with its uncommon personal and mystical folkloric bent." 





Benjamin Zander talked with Brian Bell about Ginastera's concerto and Wentink.

Also on the program, Zander and the orchestra perform Gershwin's An American in Paris:

Silvestre Revueltas's Sensemayá has been described by some as a Mexican equivalent of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring.  Zander and Bell offer a guided tour:

Finally, the orchestra also performs The Rite of Spring itself, a piece that Zander returns to for the third time:
