Notes & Reviews:

The mother-daughter of Swiss Duo Praxedia present a collection of pieces from the Romantic era transcribed for harp and piano, including a fascinating adaptation of excerpts from Rimsky-Korsakov's "Scheherazade. Excepting for the early classical era period, there is a comparative lack of repertoire available specifically for harp and piano, so Duo Praxedia has garnered notice for their inventive transcriptions and arrangements.
