ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The harp is thought of as a classical instrument. I have recorded "Classic Treasures" to "tip my hat" in acknowledgement of that fact. I chose songs that are familiar as I chose songs that are transcriptions for the harp. The much loved "Bach" is represented with 3 selections. Every piano student has played "Fur Elise" by "Beethoven" which I have added to the CD along with "Clair de lune" and the favorite "Canon in D" by "Pachelbel."

Thirty-two years ago, a volunteer with the Seattle Public Schools placed a harp in Bronn's hands for the first time and began teaching the 11 year old boy how to play. He advanced rapidly, and soon moved on to study with harpist Edith Lundgren. By the time he was 16, he was performing professionally in fine hotels and restaurants in the Seattle area. After high school, Bronn was accepted to the School of Music at the University of Washington where he received instruction from Pamela Vokelek. He graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree in 1985.

Bronn's dazzling virtuosity and humorous approach to a seriously classical instrument have made him a favorite with concert goers. "Because of the experience of playing in a variety of settings, I am very comfortable playing in many different styles," comments Bronn. Classical, Sacred, Broadway and Popular tunes all flow effortlessly from the strings of his harp.

Seventeen albums are currently available on "Phileo Music." They are sold in fine gift shops across the US and Canada and of course right here on CD Baby and Bronn's web page!

When first introduced to the idea of a harp concert, many audiences may respond by asking, "The harp? Isn't that what cherubs play?" The answer in Bronn's case is - "Perhaps! But do cherubs play everything from Classics to Folk to Broadway?" Even though he's not a cherub, Bronn delivers a widely varied repertoire with wit and humor. Bronn plays like an angel but looks like a logger!
