The London Harp Sound

16 Harps

16 of Europe's finest harpists in a dazzling collection of classical and popular music

Code: CACD0119


10.15 / 11.37






"A wonderful sound, and 16 concert harps is heaven in my view! Its crossover appeal of selections should be pleasing to a broad variety of listeners. The wide range of dynamics and color of the harps is exploited well in the arrangements by Paul Sarcich and others. Debussy's complete Afternoon of a Faun sounds just beautiful with the 16 harps—it's as though he should have written it for that combination to begin with." John Sunier, Audiophile Audition

The latest addition to The London Sound Series brings together 16 top European harpists and Cala Records' stable of arrangers to produce this unique album. From classics to latin, popular and jazz, the repertoire provides a showcase for the incredible sonority of the massed harps, and a display vehicle for the talents of the players, composers and arrangers.
