Gianetta Baril

Thoughts of the harp conjure images of flowing rivers, wispy clouds and heavenly creatures. But what is its real range of possibility, musically, emotionally? What of buzzing insects or a raging bull? Award-winning harpist extraordinaire Gianetta Baril has dedicated her extensive career to transforming the perceptions of her beloved instrument. Central to this programme is R. Murray Schafer’s ground-breaking 1979 masterpiece ”The Crown of Ariadne”, for solo harp and percussion. In “Raga” by Canadian composer Caroline Lizotte, Gianetta will be joined by former student Scott Ross-Molyneux who will also perform his own composition, “Journey’s End” for harp and electronics. The evening is completed with works by Spanish-American harpist/composer Carlos Salzedo and the world-premiere of “Labyrinth” by Canadian composer, Nova Pon.
