Boieldieu, Rodrigo & Villa-Lobos: Harp Concertos (SACD)

Current Stock:
Catherine Michel, Orchestre National de l'Opera de Monte Carlo, Antonio de Almeida

This is certainly unusual repertoire, of which very few recordings exist, let alone on SACD. The earliest work on this CD is by Boïeldieu, best known as a composer of comic operas. Rodrigo’s Concierto Serenata is dedicated to the great Basque harpist Nicanor Zabaleta. Villa Lobos was a self-taught musician and was able to find his way around most instruments. He stated, “Thanks to my experience with the guitar, I was also able to play the harp.”
