The lovely sounds of the harp has attracted composers to write solo passages in many famous symphonic compositions, and both Debussy and Ravel wrote pieces that highlighted the harp.  In some cases, talented composers have spent much of their energies composing exclusively for the harp as well as developing new techniques for playing this attractive instrument.

On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will beguile the hour with the seductive tones of the harp.
