LAVINIA MEIJER

Harpist Lavinia Meijer composed this solo-show because she was eager to find out the possible answer to the question: ‘in what style period do we live? It can’t be postpost-post modernism, right?’ She perfectly blends her personal stories with music coming from the previous decades, starting at the 70’s.

Because of her collaborations with several artists such as Philip Glass, Iggy Pop, Ludovico Einaudi and Laurie Anderson, and her interest in the changes of the artworld, she now couples different forms of art and connects her music to visual arts, the art of writing, spoken word, movies, animations and new electronic experiments.

Lavinia Meijer plays concerts in venues such as Carré until venues in South-Korea and from the Berliner Philarmonie to the Carnegie Hall in New York. She is one of the most important and most exciting musicians of our time.

Lavinia presents you, not only classical solorepertoire, but also modern music. She constantly breaks the boundaries of the harp as a solo-instrument. As a renowned artist, with a worldwide audience, she has won many prizes (between which an Edison in 2012), made several albums that were rewarded with the golden status anmd she received a platinum album. (Metamorphosis /  The hours with pieces of the American composer Philip Glass).

Opnamen van de succesvolle en zeer gedreven harpiste Lavinia Meijer doen altijd de oren spitsen. Door haar aanpak en repertoire, zeker.
