Notes & Reviews:

"This is, I think, either the third or fourth of Telarc's recitals by this engaging artist, but it sounds mysteriously bigger and bolder than the treasurable program of Hovhaness, which is the only other one I have. Turns out that's because she employs a new kind of harp, appropriately named "The Salzedo", created by the firm of Lyon and Healy. In all registers, top to bottom, it sounds like a regular concert harp pumped full of steroids, producing the biggest, fattest, most dazzling array of harp sounds you could possibly hear this side of heaven. It may be a very exaggerated sound, but it's perfect for Telarc's bigger-than-life recorded sound, and it fills the room with dazzling, coruscating rainbows." -American Record Guide
