Un'arpa Straordinaria - Italian Music Of The 17th
Label: Ars Produktion
Format: COMPACT DISC
Kleine Kollektiv, Das
In the development of the double harp, the addition of chromatic strings made the refined music of the late 16th century easier to play. In combination with the 'Clavemusicum omnitonum' from 1609, a polyphonic harpsichord for chromatic music, which is also used here, Das kleine Kollektiv opens new insights into the relevant repertoire. Vera Schnider is the featured harpist in this ensemble. Born in 1986 in Lucerne, she studied harp at the Lucerne Conservatory of Music with Xenia Schindler and in Detmold with Godelieve Schrama. She has appeared as soloist at KKL and the Lucerne Festival. She performs regularly with the Chamber Orchestra of Zurich and the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra. She is a founding member of ensemble proton bern as well as alumnus of the international ensemble academies run by Ensemble Modern and Ensemble Boswil.
