Brilliant refinement of your orchestral palette of timbres
This collection with two harps takes into account the fact that the use of two harps was established in the mid-19th century. Harp 1 is played by Ruth Rojahn, harpist of the Hof Symphony Orchestra and internationally successful soloist. In addition to the individual notes in different playing styles, the first harp offers an enormous variety of glissandi, which are now particularly effective in the Vienna Instruments and are easy to use. The controller structure enables extremely flexible and fast work, whereby it is very easy to switch between ranges, different tempos, up and down, and different keys in real time during the game. You now have access to all dimensions at the same time! The spectrum of the first harp is represented by a wide range of arpeggios,
The second harp, played by Julia Reth, contains an even larger number of individual notes, also in playing styles such as muted, with fingernails or pedal glissandi. The bisbigliando variations, the whispering of the delicate tremolo on two strings, which are confused enharmonically and produce the same tone, are particularly atmospheric.
- Normal, Muted, Harmonics, Bisbigliando
- Medium speed major, diminished, pentatonic, and whole tone
Harps - instruments: harp 1 & harp 2
