Product details

The Harp in the Highlands was composed at the request of John Martin, who wished me to write another "Highlands" piece to accompany A Day in Taralga, a work composed about a small and very picturesque town called Taralga, near Goulburn, New South Wales. It seemed appropriate that this companion piece should be inspired by "The Harp" in Sutton Forest.
My good friend Marlene Bell has lovingly restored this historic building which was built as an Inn in 1834 to service travellers on The Great South Road to Goulburn. She has opened The Harp as a Bed and Breakfast, so that modern day travellers can also enjoy its warmth and ambience, and stroll in the grounds which are shaded by huge old trees. This short piano piece, prompted by the name of the old Inn, is an attempt to evoke one of the many moods of the Southern Highlands - the mood perhaps picturing the misty scene which often envelops this part of the world and makes it easier for us to unite past and present.
