The Phoenix Symphony and Principal Guest Conductor JoAnn Falletta welcome harpist Yolanda Kondonassis this week. The concert includes Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, the familiar Rumanian Rhapsody by Georges Enesco and a concerto Ms. Kondonassis is touring with this season – the less familiar harp concerto by the Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera. K-Bach's Sterling Beeaff sat down with Maestra Falletta to talk about the program.
"The Sound Book-- The Science of the Sonic Wonders of the World" by Trevor Cox; "Cox is fascinated by room acoustics, and how places can be designed for speech, like classrooms, and beautiful music, like auditoriums and concert halls. you can’t help but get caught up in his enthusiasm-- He's Kind of like the Indiana Jones of Acoustic research and exploration." -Randy Kinkel
