George Frideric Handel: Music For Harp

Description

The story of Handels associations with the harp and also those of harpists with his music stretches out across more than a century, from before the composers arrival in London in 1712 until well into the 19th century, when arrangements of his works were continuing still to be published. There appear both compositions written by Handel for the instrument, such as the Harp Concerto HWV 294 and the Suite in D minor HWV 448, as well as later arrangements by composers such as Edward Jones and Nicolas Charles Bochsa. The harpist Mara Galassi performs on two contrasting period instruments, a Welsh triple harp and an Érard pedal harp. She shares centre stage with the keyboard player Giovanni Togni, who acts as the ideal musical companion on any of the three instruments which he makes use of for this CD: the organ, the harpsichord and the fortepiano.
