Album Notes
“Harp...on the Edge of Softness” reflects my four year journey choosing pieces for this CD. Early in the process I realized that the closing moments of most of the selections were gentle or “soft” in nature. My husband was the first to suggest “the Edge of Softness” as a title for this CD, a description we use for reclining on our deck lounge chairs looking out onto Lake Champlain and across to the Adirondack Mountains. Each piece on this CD has a “soft” meaning for me, evoking happy memories even though some of the pieces may only be on the outer edge of softness. The CD was recorded in a beautiful, acoustically live sanctuary, with stunning views across rolling fields to the lake and the mountains beyond. The recording site not only echos the title to the CD, but also gives the recording a very open, natural and rich sound, not a closed-in, artificial studio sound. I have a wonderful vision in my mind of listeners lounging in their most comfortable chair enjoying this CD of mostly piano pieces adapted for the harp. It is my sincere hope that I have created a unique journey for you into my “edge of softness”.
