Notes & Reviews:

Bookended by two works of Lou Harrison, Karen Gottlieb's Music for Harp is a tribute to four mid-20th c. San Francisco Bay area new music composers: John Cage, Wayne Peterson, Dan Reiter and Mr. Harrison. Both individually and as a group, the compositions reflect elements from the cultures of Southeast Asia, India, "The Silk Road", and Europe. Ms. Gottlieb has performed with the SF Symphony for more than two decades as second harpist. In addition, Ms. Gottlieb is Principal Harpist for The SF Contemporary Music Players and performs regularly with other Northern California new music groups.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
This is an attractive program played with warmth and love. This is a very pleasant recording of very listenable harp music.
