Product Description

“Good transcribing is an art unto itself and Kondonassis has mastered it . . . [she] brings so much intellect, taste, and technique to her harp that she could probably sway me with Yankee Doodle.” AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE

“With A New Baroque, Kondonassis shows that she possesses that rare combination of artistic passion and careful scholarship that is required to make Baroque music not just beautiful but transcendent. It is much more than a virtuosic success; it is an album that will continue to surprise you with its musicality long after you know every note of it.” THE HARP COLUMN MAGAZINE

“Kondonassis’ understanding of counterpoint makes this much more than another pretty harp disc.” ON THE AIR MAGAZINE

“… [Kondonassis’] version of Bach’s Suite for Lute (BWV 996) is extraordinarily appealing… harp playing doesn’t get any better than this.” FANFARE
