Yes I know it's only a tiny spider...... but in all the years I've been playing I've never had a spider drop down on my hands whilst I was playing before.
Flys, wasps, daddy longlegs - yes, but never a spider.
One of my favourite pieces ever... By one of my favourite harpists, Rudiger Oppermann.
His duo with Park Stickney is amazing and his music is utterly brilliant, full of colour and soul. The duo version of this piece on their CD, Harp Summit is sublime and I think his solo harp version is pretty damn good too.
I was recommended to buy their CD by a friend who said it was one of the best harp CDs ever, and they certainly weren't wrong, if it isn't already in your harp collection you should get it!
Well, I'm a bit of a harp nerd, and it's the quirky more unusual side of harping that usually catches my eye and ear!
