Product details

Led by Australian harpist Alice Giles, these seven female harpists make a truly astonishing sight, and make a truly astonishing sound. Their repertoire is varied, ranging from old chestnuts like Bach's Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring to potential classics like Salzedo's remarkable Bolmimerie, the first work written for seven harps and here receiving its first recording. SHE has commissioned several Australian composers to write new works, and these are included on this CD.

Duration: 65 min.

Liner notes include programme notes and biographical notes on composers.
