I've been a fan of Sasha Boldachev for a while, he is simply one of the most astonishing harpists around. His technical prowess is on another level, and he is so musical. Here is his arrangement on themes from Rimsky-Korsakov Scheherazade. About half way through he starts to use lots of extended techniques to add (even more!) colour to the piece. My eyes and ears may be deceiving me, but I'm absolutely sure he is doing a double harmonic octave glissando in the left hand at one point. Incredible stuff!
