Notes & Reviews:

Described as a "very refined" artist by the critics (La Presse, Montreal), the young Quebec harpist Valerie Milot has a flawless technique and a style that is both colorful and powerful challenging the cliches associated with the instrument. Although the earliest harps we know about go back to Sumerian times, they were to remain rather unsophisticated until the 17th century, when Tyrolean instrument makers modified the tuning and added pedals, for modulation. This recital intends to illustrate the possibilities inherent in the instrument, its resonance, sonic volume and contrasts, as well as its particular effects.
