Harpist Yolanda Kondonassis and guitarist Jason Vieaux are now on tour in support of their latest collaboration, an album featuring two world premieres for the duo. Asked what she loves best about their instrumental combination, Yolanda said it was how the blend and contrast “changes constantly depending on the register, the articulation, and the dynamics.” And you can hear that for yourself in this Impromptu, and when the two perform at Ravinia on September 3rd.
