Lavinia Meijer harp

Lavinia Meijer is one of the world’s most adventurous harpists. Philip Glass is possibly the most innovative and influential classical composer of our own time – and Meijer’s performances of Glass’s music have been acclaimed by the man himself, not least at his 80th birthday concert at Carnegie Hall earlier this year. This recital is a celebration of a truly singular musical mind, from an artist who sees no limits to what a harp can do.

Venue: Dora Stoutzker Hall

Tickets: £16, £14 concessions
