Harpestry: A Contemporary Collection based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This compilation CD from Imaginary Road Records is scintillating, varied, and intriguing--a celebration of harpists and harp-playing styles from around the world. The harpists showcased are Rudiger Oppermann, Maureen Brennan, Ann Heymann, Deborah Henson-Conant, Michelle Sell, Janet Harbison, Cynthia Mowery, Luis Felipe Gonzalez, Geist, Derek Bell, Patrick Ball, Andrea Piazza, and Andreas Vollenweider. The types of harps they play (Celtic, Gothic, traditional Tyrolean, Venezuelan, nylon strung, wire strung, Classical pedal and concert harps, and electric harps) are as varied as their musical styles, which include traditional, classical and jazz. I became aware of this recording, and it’s companion album “Celtic Harpestry” by reading a review for yet another harp album, “Faces of the Harp” (from Narada). All three CDS are wonderful, as well as quite complimentary, and I’m delighted to have come across them. If you like harp music, you’re sure to enjoy them too!
