by Catrin Finch
Made available as a single publication for the first time, Catrin’s contemporary pieces for harp, Clear Sky, Sunflower, Môr Arianrhod and Aurora are joined by a fifth, Endless Sky.
“Pictures is the first in a series of works for solo harp written between 2015 and 2020. A collection of five different pieces, Clear Sky and Aurora were written for my first ever self-composed album Tides. Sunflower was commissioned by the Tamnak Prathom Harp Centre in Bangkok for the Third Thailand International Harp Festival and Youth Competition, and Môr Arianrhod (The sea of Arianrhod) by the Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias for the Youth Competition in the Fourth Wales International Harp Festival. More recently, Endless Sky was written during the Covid-19 lockdown of 2020.”
