This piece gains a whole different voice when played on harp, but is, I think, equally majestic in its own right. Performed by Amy Turk.

Courtesy of Crescendo. Starts with Harper Tasche introducing his cross-strung harp, after which he performs the first piece of Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier. Impressive as always, to hear Bach coming out of anything other than a pedal harp. Having a cross-strung of my own, I know it’s not nearly as easy to play as Harper makes it look.
