The harp you see here is a Thormhalen Ceilidh, but the recording is on a pedal harp. The shift from black and white to color reflects the post-pandemic season. Laura Zaerr is playing.
Laura Zaerr’s Standing in the Dark is for solo lever or pedal harp. This original piece is based on a poem by David Whyte. “Sometimes when we are surrounded by darkness, we become aware of details unnoticed in the broad light of day,” says the composer. “Other senses are heightened. Smells become richer, the sense of touch becomes more significant, and very faint sounds can take on huge proportions. Standing in the Dark commemorates those times when we are required to hold our ground in the face of the unknown. In doing so we learn to transform our narrowness into unimagined vistas of brilliance.”
