T21 Hidden Danish Treasures

5-days from Sat 6th to Wed 10th April - 4:30pm

Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space


Come on a treasure hunt in Danish archives in search of a repertoire of harp music that has been hidden for centuries. There is a wealth of charming, original harp music to explore. Much of it was written for the hook harp, so it is eminently suitable for the lever harp, but of course, pedal harps are very welcome!

Tutor: Helen Davies - Helen was born in Wales, but has lived in Copenhagen since 1989, where her main field of work has been in contemporary electronic improvised music and folk music. Highly regarded as a teacher, she is also currently researching forgotten harp virtuosi and their music from 18th and 19th century in Scandinavia.
