Maxine Eilander plays on a range of specialized Baroque and Classical harps. She has most recently started working on a project of harp and violin music by little known female composers of the Classical and Romantic periods with violinist Tekla Cunningham. Maxine is a regular harpist for Pacific MusicWorks in Seattle and with the Boston Early Music Festival. She has appeared as a soloist with many leading ensembles including Tragicomedia and Tafelmusik.
Eilander has performed at numerous opera houses and festivals, including the Covent Garden Festival, Staatstheater Stuttgart, and Netherlands Opera, playing continuo in productions of various Baroque operas and in chamber music. In 2012 Maxine was invited to perform Handel’s Harp Concerto at the World Harp Congress in Vancouver. Recordings include Handel’s Harp, released on ATMA, with all of Handel’s obbligato music written for the instrument. Maxine also teaches harp and piano in her home studio in Santa Clarita.
