Recently I made the decision to attend a Harp concert with my girlfriend and her family I must admit to thinking that all this time the instrument called The Harp was strictly used to put people to sleep I was not at all prepared for the miracle I was about to receive As I sat there in the front row positioning myself for a good nap I suddenly heard the most beautiful music my ears have ever witnessed Letizia Belmondo had begun a performance that would completely change the way I felt about all types of music Out of the 6 pieces played I will briefly mention 2 The first was the opening piece of her performance and was written by the composer Domenico Scarlatti born Naples 26 October 1685 died Madrid 23 July 1757 The piece was Andante Moderato - Sonata in F Minor In my research I found that Scarlatti wrote the book on many complicated techniques such as hand-crossing rapidly repeated notes wide leaps in both hands and countless other means of achieving a devastating brilliance of effect Letizia had no doubt spent many years mastering these techniques as she clearly portrayed in her rendition of this piece The second I chose was the Introduction for Cadenza and Rondo by the renowned 19th century harpist and composer Elias Parish-Alvars This man both during his time and still today was recognized as the King of Harpists Of all the works I had the pleasure of listening too this was the most moving I dont think any song has brought up so many different forms of emotion than this magical tune It felt like being on a roller coaster Being a newbie to this form of music I have been struggling to find any information on the story of these songs I can strongly attest to feeling emotions that I never knew existed I can tell you that all
