A Harpist's Christmas
A Harpist's Christmas with Yolanda Kondonassis is a celebration of the holiday with familiar carols arranged for harp, flute and viola. Host Fred Child welcomes one of the world's pre-eminent harpists, Yolanda Kondonassis, into the music studio to play these tunes and to talk about what makes each of these carols so special. Yolanda is joined by Joshua Smith, principal flutist with the Cleveland Orchestra, and Cynthia Phelps, principal violist with the New York Philharmonic. The particular blend of these instruments is at once delicate and dynamic. It's a beautiful way to celebrate the season.
