Dalvimare: 3 Sonatas
Format: COMPACT DISC
An extraordinary figure in the history of French music, Martin-Pierre Dalvimare (1771-1839) lived in Paris during the difficult years of the Revolution and of Napoleon’s reign, achieving great fame for his talent as a harpist. He composed many works for his instrument. The three harp sonatas recorded in this programme by Paola Perrucci are excellent music and technically demanding works, revealing the composing skills of a composer who moved with the times, was receptive to Beethoven’s novelties and capable of recreating on the harp a melodically and harmonically complex language. They will undoubtedly be a pleasant surprise for those who are not familiar with the harp’s expressive resources. These pieces are performed by world-renowned harpist Paola Perrucci.
