Notes & Reviews:

"My goal is to make the harp better known as a solo instrument, with all its possibilities, which are often still unknown to the wider audience," says Lavinia Meijer, a new artist at Channel Classics. Her debut CD combines three 20th century French masters - Salzedo, Caplet and Ibert. At the age of eight, Meijer was captivated by the magical sounds of the harp. Her hope is that this disc will help listeners to experience some of the magic she felt then and still feels today. Meijer is recognized worldwide as a rising star of her instrument. Born in Korea and adopted into a Dutch family, she is now based in the Netherlands. Meijer has toured as a solo-harpist across Europe, America and Asia and has won several important music prizes and special awards.

"A bewitching recital from first note to last." -Gramophone Magazine
