About the event
From the earliest moments in history, music has been a direct reflection of nature and its surroundings. So much so, even our beloved composer Claude Debussy once said, “music is the expression of the movement of the waters, the play of curves described by changing breezes." With guest musicians from the esteemed CMS Lincoln Center, Kallos presents an all French program of harp chamber music. Composers Debussy, Françaix, Roussel, and Tournier take us on a scenic journey of the pastoral and naturesque settings of 20th century rural France.

Bridget Kibbey, harp
Called the "Yo-Yo Ma of the harp," by Vogue’s Senior Editor Corey Seymour, harpist Bridget Kibbey “… makes it seems as though he instrument had been waiting all its life to explode with the energetic figures and gorgeous colors she was getting from it [The New York Times].” With the harp as her muse, Kibbey is in demand for her virtuosic and soulful performances —excavating centuries of music as a soloist and alongside today’s top performing artists — from the French Belle Époque, to the Baroque, to Persian Modes, to Latin Jazz traditions and beyond.
