International Harp Festival Premiere

Drake Music Scotland is collaborating with Edinburgh International Harp Festival for the first time to create an exciting new work which will premier on Wednesday 8 April 2014 at the Festival’s main concert.

Fiona Rutherford’s unique new composition, commissioned by the Edinburgh International Harp Festival in partnership with Drake Music Scotland is an inclusive, yet flexible piece, created for two disabled musicians, small harp ensemble and larger harp orchestra.  The work titled “Equilibrium” explores the sound world and texture of the Scottish Harp through acoustic instruments and music technology. Using a combination of standard and new notation methods, it will aim to break boundaries and inspire.
