Alexandra Verbitskaya, who has accompanied the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra as a harpist and pianist for a number of years, will be returning to the Ljubljana Festival stage. She began her studies at the musical conservatory in St. Petersburg and continued at the Royal Conservatory in Brussels, the University of Music in Munich and the Mozarteum in Salzburg. Verbitskaya won a series of awards and performed together with reputed orchestras such as the Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre and the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. This time she will perform a programme of works from the Romantic period, during which the sound of one of the world’s oldest instruments inspired many artists. We will hear the works of the “father of Russian music”, Mikhail Glinka, who wrote two nocturnes especially for the harp, along with his Lark, originally a work for the piano. Verbitskaya will also delight listeners with the dulcet sounds of the harp in an adaptation of the melancholic autumn song for the piano by Tchaikovsky and a phantasy on themes from his opera Onegin, with arrangements of the ethereal sounding Liebestraum by Franz Liszt, an arrangement of the virtuosic Fantaisie Impromptu by Frédéric Chopin, fantasies on themes from Donizetti’s opera Lucia di Lammermoor, and especially with two works written for the romantic harp: Impromptu by Gabriel Fauré and Valse by Joseph Jongen.
