- Richard Wagner
Through the complex purity of the harp, Paola Baron takes an intimate look at opera. She turns to the legacy of bringing this repertoire to solo music. A necessary revisitation, as the musical production of the stage and private life leading up to the 19th century, partly obscured in the era of early recordings, cannot be fully glimpsed.
Opera, in different ways, manifests that the limits of the harp are not known. It celebrates the art of "translating" immense musical groups for the instrument. It attests that a single performer can bring varieties of textures and sound levels sometimes seen as exclusive to musicians' ranks.
