    Hi! I am looking for info about the date/location of Gliere’s Harp Concerto world premiere. I got some word-of-mouth insights on this, but none have been verified and unfortunately, I don’t have much time to do some thorough research on the topic.

    If anyone has exact information about this, please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

    Привет Ина i think it was played in Moscow by X.ERdeli first as it was composed for her, and the date should be 1938. but i will check it more.

    From the 14th to the 30th of November, 1938, the Second Decade of Soviet Music was celebrated in the concert halls of Moscow. Along with the new compositions by A. Khachaturian, V. Muradeli, S. Prokofiev, R.M. Gliere’s Concerto for harp and orchestra was performed by the Honoured Arist of the Russian Federation K. A. Erdeli and conducted by L.P.Schteinberg (23 November 1938).
