Bridget Kibbey

According to the New York Times, harpist Bridget Kibbey “…makes it seems as though he instrument had been waiting all its life to explode with the energetic figures and gorgeous colors she was getting from it.”

Called the "Yo-Yo Ma of the harp," by Vogue’s Senior Editor Corey Seymour, Bridget Kibbey
is a winner of a prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, a Salon de Virtuosi SONY Recording Grant, an artist with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and winner of Premiere Prix at the Journées de les Harpes Competition in Arles, France. Kibbey has fast gained a reputation for her diverse, energetic programming that spans the baroque, French Masterworks, and rhythmic migration in South America.

Upcoming highlights include: Multiple tours of her own adaptations of J.S. Bach’s keyboard concerti alongside the Dover Quartet in the US and Canada, a ten-city duo collaboration with mandolinist Avi Avital, and various solo recitals around the United States.
She premieres a new harp concerto with four American Orchestras – written by composer João Luiz Rezende - exploring the evolution of Brazilian popular dance forms on the harp, alongside her own Bach transcriptions with string orchestra, starting with the Orlando Philharmonic, paired with Bach’s Harpsichord Concerto in F Minor.
She returns to the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner, presenting French Masterworks by Debussy, Ravel, and Caplet.

Kibbey has toured and recorded with luminaries Placido Domingo, Dawn Upshaw, and Gustavo Santaollalo for SONY Records and Deutsche Grammaphon; and, her own debut album, Love is Come Again, was named one of the Top Ten Releases by Time Out New York.

Bridget Kibbey's solo performances have been broadcast on NPR's Performance Today, New York's WQXR, WNYC's Soundcheck, WETA’s Front Row Washington, WRTI’s Crossover, and on television in A&E's Breakfast with the Arts. Most recently she was named "Best in Studio 2018" by WQXR for her performance of her own adaptation of J.S. Bach's Toccata and Fugue, live on air.

Kibbey appears frequently as soloist and chamber musician at festivals and series across the globe, including Schloss Elmau, Pelotas Festival, Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart, Aspen, Bravo!Vail, Santa Fe, Spoleto, Big Ears Knoxville, Chamber Music Northwest, Bridgehampton, Bay Chamber, Savannah Music Festival, and Music@Menlo.

Like a Yo-Yo Ma of the harp…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.Atlanta Journal-Constitution
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 aesthetic, she lends her unorthodox virtuosity and powerful attack to a nonstop series of new commissions…Lucid Culture
Harpist Bridget Kibbey's recital at the Phillips Collection on Sunday went from beauty to rarefied 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...Joe BannoThe Washington Post
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...Steve SmithThe New York Times

"...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."Richard ScheininMercury News- San Jose, CA

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...James McQuillenOregonian

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...Steve SmithTime Out NY

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.)...Charles AtthillThe Union

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...Olivia GiovettiTime Out NY

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.
