Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Prize-winning harpist Lavinia Meijer's third CD for Channel Classics brings together popular Fantasies and Impromptus by Spohr, Fauré, Pierné, Saint-Saëns, Roussel and Glière. Added to these are world premiere recordings of works by two completely forgotten composers for the instrument, Johannes Snoer (1868-1936) and Gabriel Verdalle (1845-1912). Meijer's fluid technique and keen musicality are heard to great effect here and Channel's superb multi-channel sonics add an unmatched level of clarity to the production.

Classic FM Magazine
Meijer here demonstrates the brilliance that has bagged her top prizes at harp competitions around the world. Her tone is luscious and richly expressive - she captures every particle of nuance in the music

Gramophone Magazine
An excellent collection for anyone who loves the harp
