New album Golden Light available nowMarch 19, 2015
Our brand new CD Golden Light is now available to order from here – just £12 which includes UK delivery.
The CD features Pinus Sylvestris – a piece written by Esther and commissioned by the Forestry Commission to commemorate the Scots Pine being named as Scotland’s national tree.
It also features the piece Twa Sisters – originally composed for three harps specially for the 2014 International Harp Festival in Caernarfon. This special piece involves the telling of an old folk tale, and features many extended and unusual harp techniques.
The CD also includes a brand new recording of the quartet’s first piece Clouds. This piece has grown and evolved to such an extent over the past few years that we thought it best to record it again and include the entire piece in the new album.
