Notes & Reviews:

  • 18th century German composer Ernst Eichner's works were well-thought of by his contemporaries.
  • His harp concertos are technically very difficult works surely were intended for a particular virtuoso.
  • One of the leading harpists of our time, Silke Aichhorn, has now recorded these wonderfully melodious works for cpo, along with two harp concertos traditionally ascribed to Eichner but now thought to be by Jean Théophile Eichner.
  • Kurpfaelzisches Kammerorchester is directed byStefan Fraas

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The performances and sound are excellent. Ms Aichhorn plays the difficult passages easily and with style. The E Eichner concertos mostly put her in the background, but when the music allows she shines through and is very impressive. The conductor and orchestra make a good case for reviving this mostly forgotten music.
