Notes & Reviews:
ICON: The Complete Erato and HMV Recordings of Lili Laskine (1893-1988) is a commanding and needed tribute to one of the finest and most admired harpists of the 20th c. Greatly admired as a musician for her sonority and phrasing, she recorded many noted classics, and had the best composers of the era write works for her. These fourteen CDs include works by Handel, Boïeldieu and many of her French contemporaries, among them her favorites Debussy and Ravel. She was also marvelously quotable: " Competition is the nerve of war "and "Vocations? Rubbish! You need good fingers and a sacrificed childhood. "
