Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gary Schocker is best known as the most published composer for the flute, but also is a world-renowned flutist. He has turned his attention to composing for solo harp, an instrument he is now playing. For this disc he has arranged 21 favorite Christmas carols for harp, performed by the ever-popular harpist Emily Mitchell. Ms. Mitchell’s 30-year career includes numerous recordings, as well as performing and teaching around the world. In the words of the Washington Post, “Mitchell commands a vivid palette of colors and uses them with imagination.” - Albany Records
