Russian Harpist Alexander Boldachev Performed Solo in Carnegie Hall

Chopin’s sketch “Aeolian Harp” was performed by the Russian virtuoso at a speed of 22 notes per second. “I didn’t specifically aim to hit records when I trained this piece,” - the musician explained. “But this episode feels like the wind is playing the harp now.”

      The winner of international music awards, Alexander Boldachev has been a guest soloist of the Bolshoi Theater since 2015. His debut solo concert at the Carnegie Hall in New York on Tuesday started his world tour, which will unfold in 12 cities around the world throughout the year.

      The concert program includes Boldachev’s arrangements for harp of classical compositions by Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, and Stravinsky, as well as rock hits: Californication by Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bohemian Rhapsody by Freddie Mercury and Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana. His own compositions will also be played.
