Automne - Changing colours of harp music

From classical to folk, from sweeping glissandi to the strikingly contemporary, the range and diversity of the harp always entrances and amazes.

Automne: changing colours of harp music is a journey through a fantastic kaleidoscope of compositions for the harp.

From the sound of traditional folk music we are led into the folk inspired (with a premiere recording of contemporary Australian composer Helen Cartridge's Journey of the Harp, a work based on the writing of JRR Tolkien.)

We then enter the rich tradition of European art music with the well-known names of J.S. Bach and G.F. Handel, and the lesser known names of harpists who composed for their instrument - Nicholas Charles Bochsa, Henriette Renie and Marcel Grandjany who provides the title track, marked by its rich, luscious glissandi.

The CD finishes with another Australian premiere. David Holyoake's Storms makes full use of all the colours of the harp to depict gathering winds, lightening and drops of rain- a work of power and delicacy that sums up all that the harp is capable of.

Automne is Melbourne harpist Megan Reeve's first solo recording. She holds a Bachelor of Music degree with Honours from the University of Melbourne, a Master of Music Performance degree from the Victorian College of the Arts, and a Master of Arts in Music, Culture and Politics from Cardiff University, Wales. Megan has also completed a Summer Academy course in Salzburg, Austria.
