Lauderdale harpist releases CD
Stephanie Claussen’s new solo harp album “Soirée à Montpellier” (“Evening in Montpellier”) reflects a city that is at once ancient and chic, charming and wild.
Living in the medieval center of Montpellier, France, for two years, Claussen heard accordion music on the tram, carousel music as she passed through the main plaza to buy groceries, classical music pouring out the open windows of a music school and Gregorian chant at a cathedral.
Claussen compiled these bits of music and interpreted them on solo harp in her newest release, selecting pieces with the aim of creating a musical atmosphere similar to what she experienced in Montpellier.
