Holiday Music Performance: Daniel Harp, Cellist
Ben Nacar is a native of the East Side of Providence, Rhode Island. He just graduated from Brown University (Class of 2012) having completed a double concentration in Computer Science and Classics.
Nacar has given several solo recitals at the RISD Museum in Providence, at the William Hall Library in Cranston, and, sponsored by the Cogut Center for the Humanities, at Brown's Pembroke Hall, the Cogut headquarters. All of these concerts have featured his favorite works by Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Liszt, Scriabin, Rachmaninoff, Medtner, and Bizet-Horowitz, and on occasion Nacar’s his own compositions and arrangements. In the fall of 2010 Nacar performed one twenty-minute segment of Community MusicWorks' weekend-long Bach Marathon. A few videos of these solo performances can be seen on my Videos page. - http://www.bennacar.com/video/
Daniel Harp, cellist, has taught cello and chamber music in the Brown University Music Department since 1986. He has studied privately and in classes with some of the great concert cellists of our time, including Lynn Harrell, Zara Nelsova, Janos Starker, Bernard Greenhouse and Raya Garbousova. Chamber music studies were with the LaSalle String Quartet and Juilliard String Quartet and the Beaux Arts Trio. His professional career began with his concerto debut with the Charleston (S.C.) Symphony Orchestra where he played Bloch’s Schelomo and was called a “master of the cello” by the Charleston Evening Post. He has subsequently performed numerous concertos with orchestras and solo recitals throughout the United States, being reviewed for his “dramatic precision, excellent intonation and a breathless legato line” (The Cincinnati Inquirer) and “ rich sonorities and perfect dynamic control” (The Maryland Enterprise.)
