Notes and Editorial Reviews

The term ‘toccata’ is associated with virtuoso music demanding the utmost dexterity of its performer. Elisa Netzer, winner of the 2015 ‘Suoni d’arpa’ International Harp Competition in Italy, presents a wide-ranging programme which includes her own arrangement of one of Alessandro Scarlatti’s harpsichord toccatas, popular pieces such as Khachaturian’s Oriental Dance and Toccata, original works for harp such as Nino Rota’s attractively neo-classical Sarabanda e Toccata and the premiere of the brand new Toccare composed for her by Swiss composer Stephan Hodel. Elisa Netzer is one of Switzerland’s leading young harpists. After making her debut at the prestigious Lucerne Festival in 2017 with a solo recital, she represented Switzerland at the Read more World Harp Congress in Hong Kong. She has given recitals across Europe, and has appeared as a guest soloist with many orchestras including the Orchestra della Svizzera italiana, the Filarmonica Arturo Toscanini and the Orchestra Citta di Vigevano.
