Notes & Reviews:

In the golden years of the harp (1750 - 1850), Sophia Giustina Corri was the only important woman composer. She left a body of about 70 compositions. The six sonatas for harp, Op. 2 (Books 1 and 2) were presumably composed when she was between 16 and 19. The first volume of sonatas is the only one still in print and performed today, although for many years it was erroneously attributed to Jan Ladislav. Already in these first sonatas one can find the typical characteristics of her music: the brilliance and freshness of her writing, the originality of many passages, and a great sense of proportion that ensures that no theme - even the least original - wearies the listener.
