Notes & Reviews:

Harpist Sivan Magen dazzles audiences wherever he goes with his formidable virtuosity and demonstrably perfect technique. Recorded at the famous Yehudi Menuhin School in Surrey, ‘Fantasien' marks Magen's Linn debut. The recording is a showcase of the modern concert harp demonstrating the powerful expression, dynamic range and sheer excitement this popular instrument can generate in the right hands.

Sivan Magen has recorded two previous albums, both of which received critical-acclaim; his Britten recital was listed in the New York Times' ‘Best Recordings of 2012'. Praised by the press as ‘a magician' (WQXR, New York), of ‘unheard of depth of colors, range of expression and rhetorical flow' (American Record Guide), Sivan Magen is the only Israeli to have ever won the prestigious International Harp Contest in Israel. Magen also won the Pro Musicis International Award in New York and the Borletti-Buitoni Trust's 2012 Award for exceptional young musicians.
