World Premiere of Hannah Lash's The Peril of Dreams with the Seattle Symphony

Nov. 01, 2021

Thomas Dausgaard leads the Seattle Symphony in the world premiere performances of Hannah Lash's concerto for two harps, The Peril of Dreams on November 18 and 20 at Benaroya Hall. Notably, the composer will perform the work alongside Seattle Symphony's prinicpal harpist, Valerie Muzzolini.

Hannah Lash notes:

"The Peril of Dreams is a symphony expressed through the lens of a double harp concerto: four movements which are in many ways thematically connected. The first movement lays out the musical materials and the relationship of soloists to ensemble. The second, a kind of minuet scherzo, reveals a hidden character – the ‘hymn from upstairs’, which only makes its appearance at the very end of the movement.

The third movement is a kind of Tarantella or death dance – a short, poisonous spike of energy before the somber, tragic final movement in which the harps drift nobly further and further from the orchestra."
