Description

The instrumental combination of flute and harp has been popular with composers for over two hundred and fifty years, and saw its peak in the salons and courts of France in the mid 18th and early 19th Centuries. Mainly as a result of the harp’s most famous patron Marie Antoinette, many courts and chateaux around France owned a harp and evening recitals of solo harp, or harp together with flute or violin, were common place. So popular was the single-action harp that in Paris alone by 1784 there were fifty-eight harp teachers and more than sixteen harp makers. The performers, composers and builders Krumpholtz, Naderman and Bochsa, all represented on this recording, were mainly responsible for the continued development, popularity and extensive repertoire of the single-action harp, which far exceeded the expectation at the start of the 18th Century.

Press reviews

Fanfare

…) Beautiful music, gently unfolding before our ears (…) (…) Exceptional quality of the interpreters. Solomon and Nagasawa are refined musicians, and they manage to extract blood from stones. Their ensemble playing is always perfectly synchronised and defined dynamically. They breathe together and phrase together and yet the music still sounds free and improvised. (…) (…) Unpretentious music played with such elegance and panache is a rare find. (…)
