Praised by the press as “a magician" (New York’s WQXR), whose “virtuoso playing conjures an astonishing range of colour and dynamic" (The Daily Telegraph), Magen transforms the harp into an expressive, colorful and virtuosic instrument, moving it to center stage through the exploration of the standard repertoire, the commissioning of today’s composers and his new adaptations to the harp of some of the greatest music of the last three centuries. Harpist Sivan Magen hosts a Harp and Chamber Music Masterclass with students from the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music.
Made possible by the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund. Classical music was a passion of the Dobrows, who established a generous endowment at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to make programs like this possible. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2018-2019 Dobrow Series.
