The Crown of AriadneThe Crown of Ariadne Ref: A1046
Eleanor Turner
For this recording I have chosen five striking works that show how the harp can evoke radically different atmospheres and be a means of expression for composers writing in highly diverse styles. The centrepiece of the album is R.M. Schafer’s highly original The Crown of Ariadne, based on events in the life of the Minoan Princess, Ariadne, who saved Theseus in his struggle against the Minotaur of Knossos on the Greek island of Crete. The harp is set amongst an array of small percussion instruments – bells, cymbals, crotales, a bell tree, triangles and wood blocks – all played by the harpist. I remember the first time I heard Ariadne, ten years ago, performed by Erika Waardenburg. I was mesmerised as she swept between the instruments on her left and right, deftly playing the harp all the while I knew I had to perform the piece myself.

Spirits of the Night - Shades of GriefSpirits of the Night - Shades of Grief Ref: adlais181
Thomas Hewitt Jones
A quirky, wistful journey through different colours, textures and tonalities. It is intended to be an imaginative, emotionally intense piece which aims to draw the listener into a fantasy world which exhibits light and shade: an emotive balance of anguish and hope. This piece was commissioned by and written in 2009 for harpist Eleanor Turner, who gave its World Premiere on 30th January 2010 at the Sala Incontri, Chiusa Pesio in Italy, and the UK Premiere on 19th July 2010 at Oundle Festival. Eleanor has edited the score with considerable input by Charlotte Seale, to whom she is very grateful. Thanks also to Ann Griffiths for preparing the final version for publication.
