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.

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.)

  • Sight for sore eyes (Mar 27, '15)

    Winter’s mess has me craving tidiness (I understand the whole spring cleaning thing now and have gone a little nuts clearing surfaces at home) and its palette of whites, greys, browns, and bronzy greens has made my eyeballs hungry for super-saturated rainbow colors. You too? I had both wishes fulfilled during one dark, rainy day yesterday. Betsy and I […]

  • The littlest things (Mar 20, '15)

    Pretty soon only the biggest bonanzas of blooms and armfuls of harvests will knock our socks off but right now, on the first official day of spring, it doesn’t take much to get us excited. Any evidence of the growing season, no matter how small, is huge.
