90.9WGUC Cincinnati speaks with Yolanda Kondonassis & Ward Stare about 'American Rapture'

Bookmark and Share

Azica Records recently released an album titled American Rapture from Ward Stare and the Rochester Philharmonic. The release contains three American works from three different generations of composers, one being Grammy-winning Jennifer Higdon. Her new Harp Concerto, written for and performed by Yolanda Kondonassis, is a delightful addition to the harp repertoire and one, I believe, will be performed for years to come. You may have recently heard an excerpt from this concerto on WGUC's New at Noon. Not long after the album's release, 90.9WGUC: Cincinnati OH, host Jessica Lorey had the pleasure of chatting with both Stare and Kondonassis about this project.
