"Harpist Bridget Kibbey's recital at the Phillips Collection on Sunday went from beauty to rarefied beauty in an eclectic hour-long program." --Joe Banno, The Washington Post "In the Carter, harpist Bridget Kibbey, at once confident and delicate, displayed her instrument’s wide-ranging vocabulary for music, revealing ever-fluctuating tempos, lightning-fast leaps and the chordal richness of the piece." --Ceclia Porter, The Washington Post "...Kibbey’s bravura and sensitivity, especially in her cadenza, outlined the music’s intriguing mix of timbres, thorny sonorities, wailing glissandos and chirping pizzicatos echoed in the strings." --Ceclia Porter, The Washington Post

I'm thrilled to be performing five premiere performances of a new harp concerto by the stunning composer Vivian Fung.

Participating orchestras: Alabama Symphony, Badische Staatskapelle Karlsruhe, Phillips Camerata at the Phillips Collection, Metropolis Ensemble, and the San José Chamber Orchestra.

January 13, 2013Bridget performs Rodrigo's Conceirto Serenata with the Pensacola Symphony

Read the Review here!

Pensacola News Journal: The glory of the evening belonged to guest soloist Bridget Kibbey. Mounting her great concert harp as an acrobat would a Harley Chopper, Kibbey turned Jaoquin Rodrigo's "Conceirto Serenata (1956)," into a tour-de-force that brought a long standing ovation.

Kibbey's encore, Bandoneon , a world-premiere written for her by Paquito D'Rivera...opened eyes to what the harp can be in gifted hands in the 21st Century...R. F. Yeager


December 5, 2012Bridget Receives Classical Recording Foundation's Young Artist of the Year Award

Read the Review of Bridget's solo showcase in Carnegie Hall:

The star of this particular evening was harpist Bridget Kibbey. While the classical concert harp probably isn’t the first instrument that you would think of as being badass, Kibbey makes it that way. Praised for her DIY esthetic, she lends her unorthodox virtuosity and powerful attack to a nonstop series of new commissions: much as the Imani Winds are doing for wind ensembles, she’s singlehandedly springboarding a new repertoire for her instrument.

The New York Times: Harpist Bridget Kibbey "makes it seem as though her instrument had been waiting all its life to explode with the gorgeous colors and energetic figures she was getting from it."

The Washington Post: Harpist Bridget Kibbey's recital at the Phillips Collection on Sunday went from beauty to rarified beauty in an eclectic hour-long program. The dazzling runs, complex poly-rhythmic figures and chiming of bell-like harmonics all made their effect, thanks as much to Kibbey's formidable technique as to the canny writing of the composers and arrangers on offer…

Lucid Culture: The star of this particular evening [Carnegie Hall, Classical Recording Foundation Awards] was harpist Bridget Kibbey. While the classical concert harp probably isn’t the first instrument that you would think of as being badass, Kibbey makes it that way. Praised for her DIY esthetic, she lends her unorthodox virtuosity and powerful attack to a nonstop series of new commissions…

Lauded for her compelling artistry and virtuosity, harpist Bridget Kibbey is gaining a reputation for showcasing the broad range of her instrument through multiple-genre performances -- drawing diverse audiences through new collaborations and platforms.Bridget is a recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Classical Recording Foundation's Young Artist Award, a 2015 Salon de Virtuosi Grant, and the only harpist to win a position with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s Chamber Music Society II, a winner of Concert Artist Guild's International Competition, Astral Artist Auditions, and Premiere Prix at the Journées de les Harpes Competition in Arles, France. She tours internationally as concerto soloist, recitalist, and collaborator with some of today’s most compelling artists.

Bridget's debut album, Love is Come Again, was named one of the Top Ten Releases by Time Out New York. She was most recently featured with tenor Placido Domingo, in a new album entitled Encanto del Mar - released on SONY Records this past year. She may also be heard on Deutsche Grammaphon with soprano Dawn Upshaw, in Luciano Berio’s Folk Songs and Osvaldo Golijov’s Ayre.

Ms. Kibbey's solo performances have been broadcast on NPR's Performance Today, on New York's WQXR and Q2 Radio, WNYC's Soundcheck, WETA’s Front Row Washington, WRTI’s Crossover, and A&E's Breakfast with the Arts.

Bridget is featured annually with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, is a principal artist with Camerata Pacifica in California, and has appeared as featured soloist and chamber artist at the Bravo!Vail, Chamber Music Northwest, Bridgehampton, Aspen, Bay Chamber Festivals, Pelotas, Savannah Music Festival, among others.

With a passion for commissioning new repertoire for the harp, Bridget recently spear-headed a five orchestra concerto-commissioning consortium with Juno-Award winning composer Vivian Fung. Bridget performed five world-premiere performances with The Karlsruhe Badische Symphoniker (Germany), The Phillips Camerata in Washington, DC, The Alabama Symphony, The San José Chamber Orchestra, and the Metropolis Ensemble.

This season’s highlights include performances of Ginastera’s Harp Concerto with the Alabama Symphony in honor of the composer’s centennial. She will be featured as soloist with the The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in Alice Tully Hall, in the Lyon and Healy Concert Series, the Ravinia Festival, the Bridgehampton Festival, the Ojai Festival, and with Camerata Pacifica. Bridget will also be featured on Los Angeles’ KCET with the San Francisco Children’s Chorus and in New York City, and with the St. Thomas Boys Choir in New York City. She will perform chamber music and solo recitals across the United States and Germany.

[H]arpist Bridget Kibbey expertly captured the moody chiaroscuro of Debussy's late sonata for those instruments. Ms. Kibbey, a performer who seems to revel in the sheer physicality required to coax a vast range of exacting expression from her stately instrument, was a delight to watch and to hear...And Ms. Kibbey was a marvel once more, her dramatic sweeps and robust lines repeatedly cause for shivers...

Everything about Love Is Come Again, from its unconventionally attractive packaging to Adam Abeshouse's exquisite recording, attests to Kibbey's professionalism and imagination. Perhaps inspiration would be a better term, given this program of underexposed works by innovative composers moved to write for the instrument after encountering a major player. À la Française, the first of André Caplet's Divertissements, offers the frilly ripples one would expect in a solo-harp recital, but Kibbey's range of touch in the second, À l'Espagnole, forecasts subtler pleasures ahead. Performances of Germaine Tailleferre's Sonata, Benjamin Britten's Suite for Harp and Elliott Carter's Bariolage are technically assured and full of character. In Every Lover Is a Warrior, the promising young composer Kati Agócs spins folk materials into a powerful, ruminative suite. Add it all up, and calling this a strong contender for the year's most distinguished debut CD doesn't seem like an overstatement...

The dazzling runs, complex poly-rhythmic figures and chiming of bell-like harmonics all made their effect, thanks as much to Kibbey's formidable technique as to the canny writing of the composers and arrangers on offer...

Joe BannoThe Washington Post

Kibbey was an especially dynamic presence, not just in her playing -- she took a virtuoso turn with the quartet in Debussy's "Danses sacrée et profane," a performance marked by crisp phrasing and driving energy -- but also in her remarks to the audience. The format of these concerts involves musicians' comments from the stage in lieu of program notes, and there's generally a certain level of endearing awkwardness involved, but Kibbey took to the microphone like a seasoned pro after Debussy's Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp, briefly explaining with clarity and confidence the significance of the piece (it was the first major work for those forces) and relating the music to Debussy's life (he was dying of cancer when he wrote it, and the first movement hints at the narcotic fog he was experiencing). An Avery Fisher Career Grant winner, she's a student of former CMNW regular Nancy Allen, so her appearance carried a sense of the torch being passed...

Bridget Kibbey is the seminar's New York professional and glamorous role model. Just 29, she's trying to sail a career where few have voyaged -- as a Yo-Yo Ma or Evelyn Glennie of the harp. On recordings, Kibbey has premiered music by acclaimed composer Osvaldo Golijov; in concert, she's joined Fringe Atlanta, a multimedia chamber group that is redefining the concert experience. As Hsu unpacks sections of the sonata, Kibbey coos and coaxes for the desired effect -- "Bring out the colors!" -- but that thumb continues to stymie the student. So master slides over to apprentice's place and shows how it's done. In a small cinderblock dorm room, a harp can be as loud as a truck. Yet Kibbey's sound is quieter than Hsu's and more theatrical; her phrases are more sculpted, charged with feeling. Within a few seconds Kibbey has given the harp an outsized personality and ethereal purity, like a piano set free of its hammers and heavy case.

Pierre RuheAtlanta Journal Constitution

"...the marvelous harpist Bridget Kibbey... Even after the stranger's arrival -- Kibbey knocked on her harp's wooden frame -- the piece retains its sheer beauty. Sunday, in the final suspense-filled moments, the harpist seemed to be gathering up baskets of opulent sound, bundles of arpeggios, floating them out into the concert hall."

Under normal circumstances, a solo harp recital would not have been on my bucket list. Until, that is, TCCA's Third-Sunday breathtaking presentation of the world-leading harpist Bridget Kibbey. I had never been to a harp recital. I could not name a classical work for solo harp. I knew of only two harpists. I could not say how a harp produces the notes of the chromatic scale (seven pedals are the secret,) and I had no idea how the harpist creates such a range of sounds just by plucking a string (it's the physics of vibration.)...

As a young girl, Bridget Kibbey heard a harpist in her church and, appropriately enough, had a religious experience. Now the young artist, who has racked up countless awards—including the Avery Fisher Career Grant she used to fund her divine solo CD, Love Is Come Again—has become well known for fostering new works, and for catholic tastes that push her angelic instrument into a wider playing field. We caught up with Kibbey as she made her way home from a gig in New Jersey to discuss her upcoming show at the Stone on Tuesday, May 18. Click past the jump for more on her love of bluegrass, how she hauls a harp around New York and what she thinks classical music could learn from salsa clubs...

All the works on Thursday’s program were written in the past 10 years, except for “Bariolage,” a six-minute fantasy for solo harp, created in 1992, when Mr. Carter was a spry 83. It was played beautifully here by Bridget Kibbey.

The Bridge Project



Seven newly-commissioned works for harp showcase the diverse cultural fabric that shapes the United States as well as Bridget’s compelling, communicative power and diversity as an artist. The album re-defines the role of the harp as each international composer uses the instrument to dialogue about his/her cultural inspiration and move to America (most having immigrated to the United States). The result: A virtuosic, cross-genre, cross-cultural celebration for harp.

Newly-Commissioned works for solo harp by



• Grammy-Award Winner Paquito d'Rivera (Representing Cuba)
• Grammy-Nominated Avner Dorman (Representing Israel)
Kati Agocs (Representing Canada)
Kinan Azmeh (Representing Syria)
David Bruce (Representing Venezuela)
Du Yun (Representing China)
Susie Ibarra (Representing the Philippines)
