Legrand, Michel, Brosse and a World Premiere for Harp

Harpist Catherine Michel performs with the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia on Feb. 9, 10 and 11.

It's not often that we hear about a work for harp getting its world premiere. So it's rather special when it does happen. And, when the work is a harp concerto by Michel Legrand - well, that kicks it up a notch. Add to that, world-renowned harpist Catherine Michel as soloist, and you have a blockbuster. Couple that with Dirk Brosse and the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia accompanying Ms. Michel and you have a spectacular musical event.
