Notes & Reviews:

This SACD includes five major works of the harp literature from various periods. The 'Sonata' of C.P.E. Bach is historically significant, marking the beginning of solo literature for the instrument. Until this point, the harp was only used as an accompanying instrument with an exotic timbre.
