3 Girls and 3 Harps

Theresa Prinsloo (harp, piano), Karla Brits (harp, piano), Sumari Naudé (harp)

3 Girls and 3 Harps was created from the need to make music together with my students. As there are only few if any compositions available for three or more harps, all the compositions had to be transcribed, which was a huge challenge for me. In our program we take you on a journey of different combinations of harps and piano; Pachelbel’s Canon in D, and the Prelude in C by Bach to a most challenging performance of Boldieu’s Concert for Harp. We will perform transcriptions of Mozart’s Elvira Madigan as well as his famous theme and variations “ah! vous dirai-je, maman” for piano. Deborah-Henson Conant’s Baroque Flamenco displays true virtuoso harp playing. The program will be completed by Theresa Prinsloo’s own composition “Fairy tales for Harp”.
