Trained at the finest conservatories both here and abroad, many of the musicians have performed and toured internationally with appearances at major festivals, including Aspen, Spoleto and Tanglewood.
The BBC Music Magazine recently reported on the groups new CD, which features works for the harp and chamber ensemble by Ropartz, Francaix, Daniel-Lesur & Ravel, commenting positively upon “ . . . the attractiveness of their programme . . .” and stating that their performances “ . . . are warmly affectionate.”
