[Harp/Neoclassical] Georgia Kelly - Winter Classics (Harp Music For Christmas) (2004) [FLAC]

Georgia Kelly - Winter Classics (Harp Music For Christmas)
| FLAC+CUE | 204 MB | Harp/Neoclassical/Instrumental | 2004 |
With only three bona fide Christmas carols— "Little Drummer Boy," "O Holy Night," and "Good King Wenceslas" — gracing this elegant holiday album by harpist Georgia Kelly, you won't get saturated with holiday cheer. The six other light classical pieces — Pachelbel's Canon, three pieces by J.S. Bach, the Gounoud/Bach Ave Maria — all belong in spirit, however. Kelly's arrangements are sensitive, with just the right balance between harp and other instruments. Dusan Bogdanovic plays guitar on the Pachelbel, and the blending of the strings between harp and guitar is lusciously golden. Marcia Miget, flute, joins Kelly on Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, while violins (Peter Kent) and cellos (Anne Pinsker) create a sophisticated ambiance on two Bach chorales. Georgia Kelly fans might expect a little new age touch here and there, but Kelly plays this music straight, with beauty and integrity. A lovely album.

Georgia Kelly is a classically trained harpist and composer who began her music studies at the age of three. Years before American audiences had even heard of pop harpist Andreas Vollenweider, this West Coast musician was gaining considerable attention for her albums of spiritual harp performances, which she initially released and distributed through her own company, Heru Records. In the late 1970s, Kelly helped define both the New Age music style and its recording industry. Musical contemporaries in those spiritually charged early days were Steven Halpern, Iasos, Constance Demby, and fellow harpist Joel Andrews. Her 1978 Seapeace, recorded with Tony Selvage on electric violin, was an instant underground hit in New Age bookstores, and the album remains a classic with sales of over 250,000 copies. That same year, Kelly and Steven Halpern recorded Ancient Echoes, sensually mysterious improvisations on the spiritual essence of the ancient civilizations. The relaxing and inspirational qualities of her music, well grounded in impeccable technique, attracted the attention of hospitals, cancer clinics, drug-abuse programs, and massage therapists who regularly use her recordings for therapeutic purposes. ~ Carol Wright, Rovi
