About

Concertgoers and critics alike rave about Silke Aichhorn’s entertainingly moderated concerts, and her goal is nothing less than the redefinition of the image of the harp! Active as a soloist and chamber musician, Aichhorn is one of the most sought-after and versatile harpists of her generation. Following her release featuring Eichner’s harp concertos, she now interprets three harp concertos by Johann Wilhelm Hertel, a composer regarded as one of the most important representatives of the empfindsamer Stil during the German pre-classical period. His concerto oeuvre comprises some fifty solo concertos, and seventeen harpsichord concertos by him are known today. Three works – heard on this CD – are assigned to the harp or harpsichord: ‘Concerto per la Harpa o il Cembalo concertato’. The harp’s softer tone seems to make it the more suitable instrument for these charming works of brilliant virtuosity offering top-quality entertainment. Genuine enrichments of the quite compact harp repertoire are in store!
