L.SPOHR Fantasie op.35 is nearly ready!

I am very happy to announce that my annotated version of Spohr’s “Fantasie op.35” is nearly ready. It will be available from Bärenreiter URTEXT around middle of February. It is since J. Zingel has edited from Bärenreiter in 1954!

Thank you for all your support, and hopefully this newest version may be useful to many harpists.

What a full program we had!! Excluding the masterclasses we gave, we had workshops by Fiona Tree, Master of Alexander technique, Linda van Baar for traditional oral learning, Manja Smits for Harp technique and myself on Spohr ” Fantasie”. Hiking in the mountains was included in the week as well.
