The harp is one of the world’s oldest and most iconic instruments, beloved for its majestic, expressive, unmistakable sound. And Glière’s Harp Concerto is a lilting, romantic masterpiece, and perhaps one of the most beautiful showcases for harp ever written.

Plus, hear even more harp highlights with the first movement of Handel’s cheerful, graceful Harp Concerto, performed alongside Mendelssohn’s evocative, energetic “Italian” Symphony.
