April 2014 news and events

May 14, 2014
2014 is well underway and recent highlights were an outreach tour (11 concerts in 4 days!) with Lisa Nelsen (flute) for the Newbury Spring Festival and a 'singer-songwriter meets harp' project with Angela Moyra at the Dutch Harp Festival 2014. Here is a video of Angela and I performing an acoustic cover of Bjork's Hyperballad for Dutch radio NCRV.

Attacca Trio enjoyed our Two Moors Festival Chamber Music Residency and look forward to two performances in London (May 20th) and a very exciting event at the Berlin Philharmonie on May 23rd. I am so honoured with the support of Salvi Harps, who are kindly providing a beautiful Arianna harp that evening for her to perform on, with the help of the Salvi and Lyon and Healy shop in Remagen, Germany.

No less exciting is our performance of the Debussy Trio Sonata, complete with MORE corrections (eagerly anticipated corrections to the score, courtesy of the hard work of American harpist and scholar Carl Swanson) at St. John's Smith Square, London, on Friday June 27th.

Before that, however, on June 6th I am performing 
Schafer's 'The Crown of Ariadne', at Harlaxton Hall near Grantham AND making my US debut with Deborah Henson-Conant's 'Soñando en Español' concerto with full symphony orchestra at the American Harp Society Conference in New Orleans, on June 25th.

My summer also features another performance of this piece, again conducted by Deborah Henson-Conant, at the 12th World Harp Congress in Sydney!

Over and out for now and back to the practice!

May 8, 2014
April 13-17 Attacca Trio spent four wonderful days at Barkham, home of the Two Moors Festival in Devon, working hard on Debussy's exquisite Sonata for flute, viola and harp and other pieces, all influenced strongly by war and illness. It was a time of deep reflection and concentration and we are immensely grateful to John and Penny Adie for supporting our residency proposal and enabling us to spend that time together with no distractions. Personally, I enjoyed having the time to read (Debussy...
