Boïeldieu’s Harp Concerto has been recorded before but never more attractively. The (originally Argo) recording is still in the demonstration class and very sweet on the ear. To make the reissue even more attractive, three beguiling sets of Variations have been added, including music by Handel and Beethoven and a Theme, Variations and Rondo Pastorale attributed to Mozart.

Dittersdorf’s Harp Concerto is a transcription of an unfinished keyboard concerto with additional wind parts. It is an elegant piece, thematically not quite as memorable as the Boieldieu coupling, but captivating when played with such style.
