Well-known political commentator Matthew Parris wrote glowing praise for harpist Louise Thomson in his ‘Notebook’ column in The Times, after attending her recital at Buxton International Festival on 17th July.
Harpist Louise Thomson looks forward to her performance in collaboration with presenter Polly Ives on 26 July at St David’s Hall, Cardiff, as part of the World Harp Congress 2022.
A majestic Czech river, a throng of mischievous elves, an epic rowing journey, and several vividly-depicted insects
The programme features some of the finest writing for harp in the 20th century, through to contemporary works by living composers. In a prominent selection of programmatic compositions, the audience is taken on a journey including a majestic Czech river, a throng of mischievous elves, an epic rowing journey, and several vividly-depicted insects.
This is just one of the varied selection of programmes on offer from Louise, which also includes her collaboration with the upper voices of the Corvus Consort, featuring music by Gustav Holst, Imogen Holst, Amy Beach and Hilary Campbell.
