  • Concert - Richard Allen (Harp)


    Thu 24/8/2017 19:30:00

    Hosted by Borders Music & Arts Society, join us for an evening with Richard Allen (Harp).

    Richard was born in 1993 in Belfast, Northern Ireland and is currently studying with Letizia Belmondo at the Haute École de Musique de Lausanne (Switzerland), having previously studied with Gabriella Dall’Olio and early harp specialist Frances Kelly as a Trinity College London scholar at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance, London. Playing the clarinet and piano from eight, he started Irish harp at thirteen, finally discovering the pedal harp at seventeen.

    In May 2016 Richard won the First Prize at the prestigious Camac Harp Competition – North London Festival; the largest of its kind in the United Kingdom. In December 2016 he was also awarded the BBC Young Musicians’ Platform award, and performed Glière’s Harp Concerto Op.74 with the Ulster Orchestra and David Brophy in January 2017. His performances have been described as magnificent, and his ‘magical’ playing has often moved audiences to tears.
