ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This CD was recorded analog reel to reel (Revox) and performed on a Wurlitzer BB, made circa 1920. It includes works by harpists who were composers as well. Bach preludes from The Well Tempered Clavier, Couperin's "Mysterious Barricades", Debussy's "Ballade" and David Raskin's "Laura" are my own transcriptions. These and many other arrangements for pedal and lever harp are available through Harpistic Publications. http://harpisticpublications.com



Dear Jim,
Your arrangements on the Harp Solos CD are beautiful. Of all the "sounds" of the recordings, I liked "Laura" the best of all.
The bass strings on the harp sound fantastic, and the acoustic is just right, the perfect blend of direct with reverberant sound. A very nice acoustic which doesn't blurr or muddy up the sound, but beautifully enhances it.
The stereo sound field is also opened up and natural.

This is a gem
This is a gem!! This cd is a showcase of pieces that illustrate the beauty and expressiveness that can be accomplished on the harp. Jim Palmer's energy and lyric pacing is especially apparent in his interpretation of Tournier and Bach. His technical skill is a marvel. The combination of live recording, period instrument and the artist make this a must have cd.
