"Some of the best Bax is here. In these atmospheric pieces he was able to throw off the fetters of inherited symphonic forms and allow his Celtic fantasy to pursue its own improvisatory course. The melodic writing is free and fertile. Bax's harp writing is especially poetic. Best of all is the short, moody Elegiac Trio. The Fantasy Sonata, for harp and viola, is remarkable for the way it holds the attention for well over 20 minutes; not easy with two such reticent instruments. The six musicians of Mobius play this music with feeling, imagination and energy, proof that harp music doesn't have to be all elfin and willowy." Stephen Johnson BBC Music Magazine, October 2000

This disc, first released in 1992, was recorded in the Medieval Hall - Cochwillan - just out side Bangor in Gwynedd. For this pressing all the tracks have been re-mastered and the sound quality greatly improved. But I hope that it retains the personal, warm quality of the original. Three very different harps were used - a concert grand harp (1984) by Horngacher of Munich, a triple harp (1982) by the late John Weston Thomas and a celtic Harp (c1979) by Brown & Taylor of Edinburgh

There are differences and similarities, and some striking inversions of expectation in this duo. The instruments themselves, for example, are both constructions of parallel lines: the vertical tubes of the bamboo mouth organ – the sho – and the vertical lines of the harp strings. Sounds emerge from the sho largely without attack, as if seeping into the earth’s atmosphere from some far-away place, and though this is diametrically opposed to the customary brittle attack of the harp, Rhodri Davies’s use of E-Bows subverts the passive-aggressive romanticism of the harp, bringing its vibrating strings closer to the sho’s vibrating reeds.

For this recording I have chosen five striking works that show how the harp can evoke radically different atmospheres and be a means of expression for composers writing in highly diverse styles. The centrepiece of the album is R.M.

Click for further detailsCymun by Siân James
I have always had a rather fraught relationship with time, and despite my best efforts, I have to admit that it does, all too often, get the better of me! And so, it is with shock and awe that I realise that it is six years since I last released an album, and it really only feels like yesterday when we were rushing to finish Y Ferch o Bedlam ready for Christmas 2005! They have been busy years, with life offering me many avenues to explore both creatively and emotionally. Thanks to those life experiences, both directly and indirectly, new songs and compositions as well as arrangements of some traditional songs have come into my life. This album is therefore a record of those songs and even though there is’nt a theme as such to the album, what does seem to meander through like a silver thread, is my love of music and its importance in my life.

Ever since the Renaissance imagined an Arcadian paradise of rustic pan-pipes and sweet-plucked Orphean lyres, the fancifully associative sound and visual interplay of flute and harp has drawn composers and arrangers, with Mozart's alluring duo concerto written in Paris in 1776 a gracious example of the combination at its most expressively sensuous.

Contemporary duos performing erudite repertoires on the Irish harp are a rarity. Loitering in their company for an entire album is akin to navigating a path back in time, but with one foot still firmly planted in the present. Cormac De Barra and Anne-Marie O’Farrell have let enough grass grow beneath their feet to ensure they’re keenly attuned to one another’s stylistic idiosyncrasies. They’ve chosen to stretch what could have been a cosy Carolan repertoire to embrace the European classical tradition, all the while mining the nethermost regions of their instruments, so that their reading of Carlos Salzedo’s Chanson dans la Nuit is a revelatory melding of creative energy and lateral thinking. A collection that promises to lure classical, traditional and contemporary music lovers harpwards. Siobhán Long, The Irish Times 29-7-2005

Triban is a British trio based in deepest Dyfed (hence the CD’s title no doubt!), comprising harpist Harriet Earis, singer /songwriter/ guitarist Ian Wyn Rowlands and fiddle player Jasper Salmon.

When these three talented individuals come together to form the unique mix that is Triban, they perform both original and traditional material, sensitively and in a flowing, graceful style.

CD CoverFirst Things First by Ailie Robertson
Shattering preconceptions about the fragility of her chosen instrument, Scottish debutante harpist Ailie Robertson basks in a heady excavation of the driving rhythms that lie dormant between the strings. Forget misty images of lovelorn maidens at lattice windows. Instead, step into a world where Robertson's harp jousts (alongside the energising confidence of fellow Scots harpist Catriona McKay) with percussion, bass, guitar and piano. Her opening salvo, The Exploding Bow, sets the tone for a funky excursion around a trio of contemporary jigs, the final one written by Robertson herself. Another of her original compositions, Good Spirits, is paired cannily with a reel, The Humours of Scariff. The tunes revel in the unpredictability of newfound company. Robertson's genius is in straddling the Irish and Scottish traditions with a fresh-faced and utterly bearable lightness of being. Siobhan Long - Irish Times review

Boieldieu was a master of the early - romantic French style at the beginning of the 19th century, abounding in charm, lyricism and brilliance, whereas Ginastera delves deep in disturbing, fierce 20th century expressionism, demanding extreme virtuosity and stamina from the harp and its player. Excellent performances by German harpist Jutta Zoff, winner of important international competitions, backed with both delicacy and force by the famous Dresden Staatskapelle.

This is a remarkably crisp and sharp-sounding album of solo harp music. The recording is absolutely first class, capturing not just the melodies themselves, but the palpable tension as each string is firmly plucked and the enduring, humming resonance that follows. Try listening to this with headphones on at a decent volume -- this is music you can feel, it shivers your nerves and shudders your bones, it's like having your ear pressed up against the soundboard of the harp. This may be an album of solo harp, but it's played with a vigour that an ensemble would struggle to match .... Mike Wilson; folking.com

Who better to showcase the possibilities of the harp, an often misunderstood instrument, than harpists themselves? All of the composers on this recording were and, in the case of Lynn Palmer, are, fabulous harpists themselves. Spanning three centuries, this music shows how innovation in composition and technology changed the harp's place in society and how the composers of the day managed to meet these demands.

This was the first record to combine the sounds of the gut and the wire strung harps. This album is a record of two different, but related, small harps. The approach to the music, and the harps on which it is played, has been formed by years of research in both Scotland and Ireland. The music itself has been gleaned from many sources, including the oral tradition, ancient archives and collections, and also includes original compositions by Ann Heymann and Alison Kinnaird, the harpers.
Click for further detailsThe Harpers Connellan by Kathleen Loughnane
"What always strikes me about Kathleen Loughnane's music is its tastiness, arrived at through the extraordinary sensitivity of her arrangements. Her playing of slow airs stops me in my tracks. The phrasing and 'holding' in the airs, the syncopation and offbeat rhythms of the dance tunes all contribute to the uniquely spirited character of her music. This album is of particular interest in that it pushes a door ajar for us, giving us access to some of the energies of the Gaelic harp tradition during the late 17th and early 18th centuries, the era of the Wild Geese." Mary Bergin.

There was a time in Ireland when many harp players were submerged in layers of cliché. Kathleen Loughnane was different, a player of quiet dignity, she saw both the harp’s place in history and its relevance to today’s music. She is perhaps best known as a member of the baroque/traditional band Dordán, but she maintains a strong independent streak... The Irish Examiner - Pat Ahern

Click here for further detailsHoudy by Isabelle Perrin
If there is no language more universal than music, then there is also none with stronger regional identities. Since French music has been on the sidelines for the past several decades, I decided to write a French Concerto for harp and orchestra. By "French", I mean in the French spirit, building on the work of the composers who came before me rather than on that of my contemporaries. A writing style without "principles" or systems to follow, not Dodecaphonic or Polytonality (it all ages so poorly!). A simple orchestra: one flute, one oboe, a clarinet in A, a bassoon, and a string quintet. As I am hardly interested in analysis, I prefer to write my music rather than to explain it. Similarly, I prefer a performer's imagination to his zealous precision; in short, I prefer musicians. This is why I chose to write this concerto for Isabelle Perrin, soloist of the Orchestre National de France. Pierick Houdy

Although Herbert Howells is known chiefly for his large body of church music, arguably the finest by any English composer of the twentieth century, he also wrote major choral, orchestral and chamber works. At the outset of his career Howells came to prominence largely through a series of striking chamber compositions including the Rhapsodic Quintet of 1919, which he described as having ‘a mystic quality’. Dedicated to one of the great violinists of the time, Albert Sammons, the Third Violin Sonata arose directly from Howells’s visit to Canada four years later. The overwhelming impact that the Rocky Mountains made on the composer when he travelled through them by train is reflected in the more dissonant and chromatic harmony compared with his other works of the period.

On a first casual listen I seriously undervalued this disc. Many of the microdynamics with which it works were lost on me. But after a couple of more careful listens I could appreciate the truly high quality of this music. It’s certainly not one to listen to in a rush. This is a concentrated music exploring the essence of sounds, certainly reductionist, but not extremely so. Or better, it’s a musical process which moves forward in little jumps and spurts, and is subtly frenetic.

Anne likes to improvise on well known Jazz standards and Traditionals. She is also dreaming behind her harp; intuitive instant music will arise with an original free sound. The music is especially suggestive for the listeners fantasy. Anne has 44 strings available. These are as it were three instruments. The harp is the rhythm, base and melody. To Anne it is very challenging to express the versatility of the harp as a solo instrument. This delicate, sensitive instrument can be played with Soul.

In this tightrope walk between past and future she gives an idea of a metamorphosis. She takes the risk and makes us vibrate by a way of tying and retying the symbolic links between the asymmetric set of her 34 strings
