French Music for Harp and Strings
by Various Artists
Released: Jul 2001
This album is so rich and sweet that it's almost like eating dessert before dinner. The decadent final track, "Danse Profane," is a colorful fare into Debussy's impressionistic harmonies. There are some recognizable hits to boot, such as "Arabesque 1" and Ravel's "Pavane for a Dead Princess." These French orchestral works lend themselves well to this chamber format.
