Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

On this recording by Harpist Astrid von Brück, the listener is taken through three centuries of harp music written by composers in five different countries. The performer states, "With the selection of these virtuosic solo-works from three centuries, I hope to wake interest in the harp and its many-sided musical and tonal opportunities." With works by Carlos Salzedo, Antonio Rosetti, Pierick Houdy, Benjamin Britten, Louis Spohr and Gabriel Pierné, the ambitious musician seems to accomplish her goal.
