Format: Audio CD
Harp and nothing but harp, played by a world-famous harpist Susann McDonald.
Thirteen pieces are played on the concert harp, two on the Paraguayan harp ("La Guabina" and "Llanos"), and one on the Irish harp (though this is actually a 2-piece set "Believe Me If All Those Endearing You Charms" and an "Irish Gigue".
Tunes vary from 14th/15th century to contemporary, some very familiar, some not well known, mostly classical, a few traditional, with wondeful variations of volume within the pieces and contrasts of style between them.
Susann McDonald plays everything with a firm, clear, fresh touch even on the most elaborate glissandos. The music flows and bubbles in cascades of sound. Subtle, unexpected variations in timing add to the excitement.
Digitally recorded and mastered half-speed by genius sound engineer Stan Ricker, the result is unbelievably pure undistorted sound, as though Suzanne were sitting directly in front of you.
Perfect both for background music and careful listening.

This harpist is a true master & I recommend this cd for all who are fans of the harp. It started out slowly with the 1st arrangement quietly warming up only to a quiet ending. The 2nd selection was totally uplifting but totally too short, 1.22 minutes. The 3rd & 4th songs are great tributes to the harp showing impressive versatility & style. The 5th & 6th songs have a Latin flair that just flow & are really a joy to listen to. The 6th & 7th are Irish selections & Greensleeves is one of the best I've heard done by harp. The next song, Courante, is a delight & reminds me of church bells & wished it was twice as long. It plays for only 1.15 minutes. I got my wish with the next song, Pavane et Bransles, that was wonderful & had an uplifting ending. The song, Jazz Band is a favorite with a quick tempo & several variations that sets the mood for fun. The next song, La Fille aux cheveux de lin slows the tempo considerably & is so quiet its almost nonexistent The last three selections are wonderful, light, flowing, effortless. I'm happy with the quality of this music & am certain I'll be playing this cd often.
