    What is the name of the piece by Osvaldo Golijov? The ASO has performed more than one of his works.

    Hello Catherine,

    Maybe you could ask the conductor the name of the piece?

    I recently played a piece by Golijov called Zhang Zhou’s Dream. It was quite beautiful, but the harp part was not written in a very practical way. Lots of note clusters that involved growing an extra foot to change three pedals at a time. If you need my edited version, I can send it to you, if this is the piece.

    Hello Elizabeth,

    I play second harp in the National Symphony and last week we did a concert opening with Webern Im Sommerwind, then the Golijov “She Was Here,” and after intermission Mahler 4. Soloist was Dawn Upshaw. The Golijov had just one harp part, but I assisted since there are two harps in the Webern. It is a beautiful setting of four Schubert songs, with a very prominent harp part. The opening is very sparkly with repeated patterns in the harp and celeste–this part is not sight-readable and would need some practice. The rest of the work is very playable, and fun and beautiful. The harp part is very prominent and exposed.
