Katryna Tan, Natasha Junyan Liu and Roberto Alvarez
Sunday, 7.30pm

Ankle bells, crotales, cymbals, wood blocks… How do these fit into a harp solo piece? Join us at HARPercussion to find out!

In this concert, Katryna Tan will play the unusual role of harpist and percussionist simultaneously while depicting the myth of Theseus and Ariadne in a suite of dances written by Canadian composer Murray Schafer.

Then revel in combinations of harp, cello and flute. Cellist Natasha Junyan Liu and Spanish flutist Roberto Alvarez will join Katryna in a presentation of well-loved contemporary works by Francis de Bourguignon, Lowell Liebermann and J.M. Damase.

Katryna Tan, a 2005 Young Artist Award-winner, was the artistic director of the first Singapore Harp Festival in 2006. Roberto Alvarez has received international prizes such as the Diploma of Honour at the Torneo Internazionale di Musica and Concurso Intenacional “Ciudad de Manresa”, and performed with renowned conductors and soloists. Natasha Junyan Liu, a two-time Cavatina Chamber Prize-winner, has been featured in numerous albums, film recordings and the BBC Electric Proms.
