Harpist Yolanda Kondonassis presents Five Minutes for Earth, her new album that both celebrates our planet and illuminates the challenge to preserve it. She asked fifteen of today’s most innovative composers to create new works for the harp, of approximately five minutes in length, that express a powerful experience inspired by Earth in one of its many conditions or atmospheres. The title is also a metaphor for the urgent and compressed timeframe that remains for our global community to find and implement solutions to the environmental crisis. All composers generously contributed their works to this project, and each solo is written for and dedicated to Kondonassis.
