Sivan Magen

Weill Recital Hall
Jerusalem-born harpist Sivan Magen has been praised for his “unheard of depth of colors, range of expression, and rhetorical flow” (American Record Guide). The first Israeli to win his country’s prestigious International Harp Contest, Magen brings his tremendous talent to Weill Recital Hall for a program that features the world premiere of a new work by Sean Shepherd, commissioned by Carnegie Hall.

This concert is part of Salon Encores. The contemporary work on this program is part of My Time, My Music.
