Description: Two reasons to buy: the Krumpholtz, while recorded before, has not been done on period instruments and the little-known Hermann concerto which dates from 1785-89 and is a two-movement work with the solo part written in a pianistic style. Hermann was a keyboard teacher to Marie Antoinette and, along with Mozart, one of the first non-harpist composers to write a harp concerto. Xavier de Maistre (harp), Les Arts Florissants; William Christie.
