A concert full of gems from the harp repertory, and including no less than five different harps played by Erik Groenestein-Hendriks.

Welcome to a journey through time with the harp. French impressionism with its moods and veils of mist seems to be made for the harp, but this would not have been possible, had the playing technique not been developed by, amongst others, wunderkind and composer Henriette Renie. At eleven, she won first prize at the Paris Conservatory with a performance that was one of the most grand in the Conservatory’s history, and the topic of discussion for years to come.
The ensemble is formed by members of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra.
