A Masterful Performance


It’s not often we have a chance to learn directly from the masters, but this recording of Marcel Grandjany performing Handel’s Concerto in Bb allows us to do just that. (Many thanks to Jana Bouskova for tipping us off about it on Facebook!) He really does make it sound effortless to play the harp. Personally, I love that he doesn’t take the first movement at a breakneck tempo—it gives me hope! There is something about hearing a great performance like this that makes me feel like I could do it too. But of course few of us could really match the expertise of this kind of playing. I guess that’s what makes Grandjany a master. Enjoy!
