If you think you know the harp and what harpists like… then think again! OOTS teams up with Eleanor Turner (head of harp at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire) for a programme featuring some of the finest repertoire written for the instrument. The centrepiece of the evening is Ravel’s jaw-dropping septet with its beguiling combination of beauty and dazzling virtuosity. Works by Debussy and Saint-Säens also feature as well as compositions by Eleanor herself. Visceral, entertaining and unexpected.
