Classical harpist

There is an infinite number of well know classical pieces which sound delightful on the harp. Classical music on the harp can really add to the grandeur of an occasion and of course there are many pieces of classical harp music that were written for the harp. Below is a selection of Classical tunes that I am frequently asked to play, of course there are many more so do make a request if you cannot see what you are looking for.  If you would like to see a list of ‘classical’ concert harp works please visit the recitals/solo page.
