Programme Note

Throughout the work the harp and the ensemble establish different kind of relationships, sometimes the ensemble magnifies the sonorities of the harp, sometimes introduces new ideas, which the harp takes and the other way around. It becomes a dialogue in which one idea leads to discover another one.
