Classic FM New Releases Show

Yet more evidence that Classic FM loves our new CD: we were recently played on David Mellor's New CD show this Saturday (13th June), where he played our arrangements of The Aviary and The Elephant from Saint-Saens' Carnival of the Animals. David apparently really admires the way we play and 'thoroughly enjoyed the CD'. Click on the link below if you would like to listen for yourselves! You can also buy a copy of the CD from Amazon if you would like to hear it in full.

David Mellor's recommended CD of the week on Classic FM!

We're very pleased to have been David Mellor's CD of choice this week on The Guest List on Classic FM. It's fantastic exposure for the group and it was great that he chose to play one of our original compositions on the programme: Eleanor Turner's Spanish-themed 'Rambla!'. Whilst we love arranging pieces by well-known composers, it is important to continue to develop new repertoire for the ensemble and show people the amazing colours and tonal variety that the harp can create! If you'd like to hear us on the show click on the link below, go to the 'listen again' section and select 'The Guest List with Anne-Marie Minhall, 07/06/09'. For those of you who don't want to listen to the entire programme, we are on towards the end.
