The harp is often said to be the Romantic instrument par excellence, and for this recording the award-winning young harpist Pauline Haas takes the listener on a journey through the repertoire, from the melancholic balladry of John Thomass The Minstrels Adieu to his Native Land to the stunning virtuosity of Albert Zabels Fantasy. Alongside Smetanas perennial favourite Die Moldau she presents her own arrangements, which include the apotheosis of romantic longing, the Liebestod from Wagners Tristan und Isolde.

Concertgoers and critics alike rave about Silke Aichhorn's entertainingly moderated concerts, and her goal is nothing less than the redefinition of the image of the harp! Active as a soloist and chamber musician, Aichhorn is one of the most sought-after and versatile harpists of her generation. Following her release featuring Eichners harp concertos, she now interprets three harp concertos by Johann Wilhelm Hertel, a composer regarded as one of the most important representatives of the empfindsamer Stil during the German pre-classical period. His concerto oeuvre comprises some fifty solo concertos, and seventeen harpsichord concertos by him are known today. Three works heard on this CD are assigned to the harp or harpsichord: Concerto per la Harpa o il Cembalo concertato. The harp's softer tone seems to make it the more suitable instrument for these charming works of brilliant virtuosity offering top-quality entertainment. Genuine enrichments of the quite compact harp repertoire are in store.

This show was recorded at Cleveland's Beachland Ballroom on November 1, 2008, where Glass Harp headlined a benefit concert for Roots of American Music, an organization dedicated to the preservation, performance and education about traditional American music in our schools. This CD finally captures the raw, improvisational energy and spur-of-the-moment creativity that has defined Glass Harp for decades, but until now has been heard only in a live setting and in the memories of the people who saw it.

Glass Harp, the legendary Ohio trio, made up of Phil Keaggy, John Sferra and Daniel Pecchio, continues to find ways to push the musical envelope of their power trio/jam band/prog rock genre. Building off the success of their double live CD "Strings Attached," Glass Harp has released "Hourglass." The 16-song studio CD is a tasty musical stew that feeds the soul.

By 1971, Glass Harp became one of the most popular (if not one of the highest-paid) groups in Northeast Ohio. This led to both supporting and headlining shows nationally from The Fillmore East to The Winterland Ballroom. On November 21, 1971, the band played an opening spot for The Kinks at New York City's prestigious Carnegie Hall, receiving a thunderous ovation at the end of their hour-long set. This performance was released as the Live! At Carnegie Hall album in 1997.

Glass Harp is an american power trio formed in Youngstown, Ohio by guitarist Phil Keaggy, drummer John Sferra, and bassist Daneil Pecchio around 1968. Their sounds would range from blues to psychedelic rock, but with endless progressive influences. Following the band's tour with The James Gang, producer Lewis Merenstein offered the band a record contract. Due to their commercial success, the band started opening for acts like Yes, Traffic and Chicago, amongst other bands.

There is reason that the term sophomore effort has slipped into cliché, and this release is a prime example of it. This is an example of a band trying really hard, but pulling apart in the process; each member competes for the most attention the whole way through. Phil Keaggy's conversion to Christianity doesn't help the recording either; there is a solid rift here between the religious songs and the non-religious songs.

The debut of Glass Harp is undeniably their strongest work, with a more unified sound and a more polished feel overall than the other records. The group's strongest songs – "Changes," "Can You See Me," "Look in the Sky" – appear here, much of it in the vein of Cream and Jimi Hendrix. Gentle "Black Horse" is a nice touch, and the group is not pulling apart so much on the first record. Keaggy is an amazing guitarist with innovative playing techniques and an ear for texture and tone color, while Sferra stands out as the strongest writer of the group. For any fan of late-'60s classic rock, this will be an excellent addition to your collection.
