Calidore String Quartet with Bridget Kibbey, harp

Delight in the harp’s dramatic entrance to the concert stage via masterworks from 19th-century France … the French Belle Époque! With virtuosic sweeps, opulent arpeggiations, and the most intimate sonorities, Bridget Kibbey and the Calidore String Quartet team up to share tales of love, death, and the macabre, via masters of color Claude Debussy, Gabriel Fauré, Maurice Ravel and André Caplet. From behind the harp, Kibbey will illustrate how Debussy changed the way we hear harmony, how Fauré and Caplet were watching and responding, and how the harp turns itself from the most sacred of personas to the harbinger of death … via Edgar Allen Poe’s infamous story, the Mask of the Red Death, which inspired this program’s finale. The Calidore Quartet also brings their signature sound and virtuosity to a Ravel masterpiece.
