SM128: On the Water

On the Water
Monika Stadler

Cover Image: On the WaterWith my music I would like to create a counterbalance to our hectic, matter of fact techno world that is alienated from nature. I invite you to enter another world and relax. My music has its source in the so-called female principle, the connectedness with nature, the rhythms of life, the experience of inner and outer moods and in silence.

Composers Notes

On the Water by Monika Stadler
Compositions for pedal and lever harps

Irish Whiskey
An arrangement of a well known Irish/Scottish melody called “The Chanter”.

Waltz for You and Me
“Waltz for You and Me” is a homage to the city of music — Vienna.

Little Bettina
The bubbly cheerfulness of my niece served as an inspiration to this playful tune.

On the Water
Sitting with a folk harp on the banks of a beautiful lake in the woods of Maine (USA), I opened myself to the peacefulness of the place and let it flow into my improvisation. “On the Water” emerged from this improvisation.

Nature’s Beauty

This composition is my contribution to a CD project sponsored by the Cultural Center of Rufßbach (co-produced by Austrian Broadcasting) where a number of musicians were asked to capture the atmosphere of the village Rußbach in the mountains. “Nature’s Beauty” grew out of the feeling of being with nature which I experienced during a stroll on the outskirts of the village.
