Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Contrarpa -program note (2019)
    The harp and the contrabass has a lot of things in common: strings, resonance body, low register, harmonics. And they are both large scale objects. But also some obvious differences – the amount of strings, the pedals, the bow. In Contrarpa the performers explore both similarities and diversities as well as interchanges. As in a relationship.
