Alice Giles

27 Mar 2019

2019 sydney coffee concerts

Shimmering, golden, dreamlike: in the hands of the brilliant Alice Giles, the sound of the harp ignites the imagination and transports listeners to places of exotic beauty.

A pair of complementary suites opens the program: the superb musical architecture of JS Bach’s music for lute lies beautifully on the harp, as does the pastoral glow of Britten’s C major Suite, one of the cornerstones of the solo harp repertoire. Music by Debussy and Salzedo – one of Alice’s favourite composers and one of the best-known writers for harp – completes a sparkling program of music spanning three centuries.
