Flute and Harp
"There's a reason this combination is such a classic..."

There is a wonderfully rich repertoire for these two beautiful instruments. Mozart's 'Flute and Harp Concerto' is perhaps the best known work (with orchestra) and there is a wealth of recital material too: Bach transcriptions, Bizet, Debussy, Fauré, Ibert, Jolivet, Saint-Saens, also a variety of more modern works including those by William Alwyn, Stephen Dodgson, Vincent Persichetti, George Rochberg, Ravi Shankar and Toru Takemitsu to name but a handful.


South West Sinfonietta with Judith Hall (flute) & Alison Nicholls (harp)

Emmanuel Church


Opening concert a real delight

"... the absolutely delightful partnership of flautist, Judith Hall, and harpist, Alison Nicholls... excellent technical control and wide dynamic range, in what was certainly the programme's undoubted highlight"

Various other instrumental combinations are also available, including flute, viola and harp, which features trios by Bax, Debussy, Takemitsu and others.

mobius programmes often feature the harp in larger works: harp and string quartet, quintets to septets. Hear Alison's recording of Introduction et Allegro by Ravel with mobius on the EMI debut series (link to cd).
