Autumn from The Seasons


Danse Sacrée et Danse Profane for Harp and Strings


Concierto de Aranjuez for Harp and Orchestra


La Noche de los Mayas

Glazanov’s Autumn from the ballet The Seasons is best known for its fervent and rhapsodic bacchanals; inventive, fresh, attractive and beautifully scored.
Debussy’s Danse Sacrée et Danse Profane was commissioned to explore the chromatic potential of the harp and remains one of the finest chamber works written.
Rodrigo’s Guitar Concierto de Aranjuez (version for harp) is the pinnacle of Spanish twentieth century music. A brilliant fusion of baroque and old folk melodies, Rodrigo adds a modern twist to distinctive Spanish colours.
Mexican composer Revueltas’ 1939 dynamic film score for the film of the same La Noche de los Mayas, explodes with fierce ostinatos, unusual meter patterns and spine-tingling lyricism.
