"The Queen of Harps...Catrin has done more than anyone in harp history to bring her instrument to a wider public." Classic FM magazine
Catrin Finch is a phenomenal musician who is doing more than anyone else so far to put the harp on the musical map. She is the former Royal Harpist to the Prince of Wales and has recorded for most of the major international record companies, including Universal, Deutsche Grammophon, EMI and Sony Classical (sales of over 30,000 copies), both solo and with notable artists such as Bryn Terfel, Sir James Galway, Julian Lloyd-Webber and Katherine Jenkins.
Her versatility in different musical genres is demonstrated by this new recording which features Catrin with her own 14 piece band "CF47", with its line-up of four trumpets, three saxes, three trombones, bass and drums. They perform an eclectic range of material, from standards like "Puttin' On The Ritz", "Misty" and "Fly Me To The Moon" to an exciting arrangement of "Children Of Sanchez", written by the jazz trumpeter Chuck Mangione. And, in contrast to the full-on power of the band, there's a solo harp arrangement of "Hymn" by the best-selling composer Karl Jenkins as well as one of Catrin's own compositions.
Personnel: Catrin Finch - (acoustic and electric harps), Harold Fisher - (drums), Dave Olney - (bass), Mike Lloyd , Trevor Mires - (trombones), Richard M. Henry, David Vines - (bass trombones), James Knight - (alto sax), Osian Roberts - (tenor sax), Samuel Mayne - (baritone sax), Toby Coles, Mike Lovatt, Craig Wild , Darren Wiles - (trumpets)

When aged 16 her studies continued in London at the Purcell School then at the Royal Academy of Music, and over the following 4 years she won awards including the Lily Laskine International Harp Competition in France, one of the world's most prestigious harp competitions.
Following on from that achievement she won the Young Concert Artists International Auditions in New York, and subsequently played in over 30 US states, the Middle East, Asia and Europe.
In 2004 she was nominated for a Classical Brit Award (Young British Classical Performer) and has since made appearances with the Boston Pops, Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Her association with Karl Jenkins led her to perform a premiere of a double harp concerto commissioned by HRH the Prince of Wales and she is currently working on new compositions for the harp with Howard Goodall and John Rutter. If all that wasn't enough Catrin was appointed `Royal Harpist' to HRH the Prince of Wales between 2000 and 2004, and she also found time to marry and give birth to a baby girl in December 2006.Read more ›
