Lavinia Meijer

presents “The Glass Effect”


International harpist Lavinia Meijer finds new sonic possibilities for the harp, bringing the instrument into genres where it is not usually heard.

Collaborating with everyone from Iggy Pop and Sufjan Stevens to Nico Muhly and Ellis Ludwig-Leone, in The Glass Effect, Lavinia brings her wide-ranging abilities to bear. Featuring her own adaptations of Philip Glass pieces — including music from Koyaanisqatsi and several of his Etudes — alongside new works written specifically for her, The Glass Effect is a dazzling display of contemporary harp work that will expand your perception of the harp’s place in contemporary music.

Lavinia’s Concert Grand harp provided by Lyon & Healy Harps, Chicago.
