Elizabeth Hainen, Solo Harpist of the Philadelphia Orchestra, is known internationally as one of the greatest ambassadors for her instrument. She has thrilled audiences throughout the world with programmes showcasing the diversity and virtuosity of her instrument. Her first recording for Avie features three concerti spanning as many centuries. Austrian composer Johann Georg Albrechtsberger was a highly regarded teacher who counted Hummel and Beethoven among his pupils, and whose Harp Concerto of 1773 straddled the Baroque and Classical eras. English harpist and composer Elias Parish Alvars toured Europe widely and settled in Vienna. His G minor Concerto, written in 1842, was a virtuosic vehicle befitting his own temperament – Berlioz called him the Liszt of the harp. Saint-Saëns wrote dozens of concertante works but only one for harp, the 1918 Morceau de concert.

"Elizabeth Hainen is a hugely talented American harpist who has made it her mission on this disc to convince us of the Harp as a good instrument for a concerto... Playing and interpretation are very fine throughout ... this disc is worth a punt if you love the harp and you’re keen to try something new."

Simon Thompson - Music Web International - October 2011


"...The entire production has class and great aural resonance, a real delight to add to an otherwise neglected body of music..." ****
