Canadian harpist and composer Josh Layne performs music by Bach, Beethoven, Layne, Presle, Smetana, and more.
Here as a guest of the New Zealand Harp Festival, Layne performs a concert that shows off the depth and breadth of the harp.
Headlined by stunning arrangement of for solo harp of Smetana’s orchestral masterpiece, “The Moldau”, the program also includes the Adagio from Beethoven’s “Appassionata” sonata, Layne’s own music, and Jacques de le Presle’s French impressionist “Garden in the Rain”.
Josh has been called a ‘harp genius’ and a ‘consummate musician’. He has performed extensively across Canada, the US, and in Europe and South America and has been praised for both his virtuosity and the sensitivity of his playing.
