A new and exciting way to play the harp,
By A Customer
This review is from: Crossing the Stone (Audio CD)
Catrin Finch is a real phenomenon among the contemporary harpists, at the age of only 23 she shows really stunning ability to cross the barriers of various musical styles, especially with her latest CD Crossing the Stone. On the album there are many classical music favourites (Debussy's Clair de Lune & Bach/Gounod's Ave Maria for example), but Catrin also fertilizes her delicate and virtuoso playing in some great jazz tunes by Chick Corea & Pat Metheney as well as a minimalist piece by Steve Reich. Almost all arrangements have been made by "Mr. Adiemus" Karl Jenkins, and this gives the album even more exciting feeling! Karl has also composed some of the tracks, for example the great Irish-style piece Thingamujig as well as the excerpts from his double harp concerto Over The Stone. A real ear-charmer, so get your copy today!
