Lavinia Meijer is recognized worldwide as one of the most successful rising stars of the harp. In October 2009, Meijer received the “Nederlandse Muziekprijs” at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw by the Minister of Culture. This Dutch Music Prize, a state prize, is the highest award a classical musician can obtain in The Netherlands.

Besides performing the standard harp repertoire, Lavinia Meijer is very keen on playing modern music. She is also interested in experiments with electronic music, theatrical performances and jazz. She has inspired several composers to write new compositions for the harp, in all possible combinations - including a saxophone quartet and even a rock band.

‘Visions’ presents a varied picture of recent repertoire from the last forty years and includes Britten’s haunting Suite, and Paul Patterson’s incredible pictorial pieces “Spiders” and “Bugs”. Lavinia Meijer’s performance of Garret Byrnes’ Visions of Twilight” will surely become the benchmark recording of a work which has become one of the most performed works for harp ever since its premier in 2000.
