Trinity Laban Harps

Despite being advertised as a harp event, this recital in the lovely chapel of the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich was in fact a selection of chamber works for harp, wind and strings. The adventurous programme was made up of works by lesser-known composers such as 19th century German Louis Spohr and Frenchman Jean Cras (early 20th century). And there were two standout performances: a gorgeous interlude by Jacques Ibert played exquisitely  by harpist Laure Genthialon, oboist Olivia Fraser and violinist Edmund Taylor; and Lowell Liebermann’s challenging sonata for flute and harp (opus 56) which was nailed by Davinya Cooper and Francesca Gao. Another triumph for the conservatoire.
