Join Chelsea Lane, harpist for the release concert and celebration of her debut album Suspensions. Released through Better Company Records, the album draws on contemporary, minimalist-inspired works to explore the theme of “suspensions,” both literal and figurative. Pairing newly commissioned works (by Ellis Ludwig-Leone and Molly Joyce) with Lane’s new transcriptions of existing works by contemporary composers (Thomas Adès, Nico Muhly, and Chris Cerrone), and a few staples of the solo harp repertory (by John Cage and Kate Moore), Suspensions is a delicately balanced, thoughtful debut. While primarily a solo harp album, Lane is joined on piano by Ludwig-Leone (of San Fermin) for his work “Processional,” as well as Nathan Schram (of the Grammy-winning Attacca Quartet) on viola for Ludwig-Leone’s eponymous “Suspensions.”
Brooklyn-based harpist Chelsea Lane endeavors to bridge the ever-widening division between classical and popular music through her innovative programming of contemporary compositions. Chelsea is passionate about collaborating with other musicians, visual artists, and dancers to help achieve this goal.
