Notes and Editorial Reviews

The London. Harp Sound is the latest addition to the best-selling London Sound Series. Sixteen of the world's finest harpists worked with leading London composers and arrangers to produce a uniquely creative album. From classical music to Latin, popular and jazz, the performers responded to the incredible sonority of the massed harps, and this engaging CD is a display vehicle for their talent and virtuosity.
