About this release

French (piano) music makes quite suitable arrangements for the harp, and even better for two harps. Their refined sound combined with both clarity and a certain opaqueness makes them an ideal vehicle for the ‘typically French’ atmosphere.

This duo of young Dutch harp players has chosen a program of well-known French piano repertoire, partly for four hands. It consists of arrangements of Debussy’s Children’s Corner, Fauré’s Dolly Suite and of parts Ravel’s Ma mère l’Oye, together with Franck’s Prelude, fugue and variations.

Both harpists, Ekaterina Levental and Eva Tebbe, prove their point convincingly. This music suits the harps to the bone, and both musicians play their instruments with all the necessary charm and intensity. The result is a delightful CD with well-known music in a different attire.
