Notes & Reviews:

The harp plays a major role in Per Norgard's (b. 1932) music, and appears in over 40 of his works, but it rarely sounds like the harp we know from Romantic music. Per Norgard is fascinated by the simplicity and primality of the instrument. With 'Through Thorns' (2003) as the pivotal work this CD offers a collection of Norgard's most beautiful works for harp solo as well as other works that demonstrate the composer's constant fascination with the instrument.
