Liliana Safikhanova, young harpist from Moscow and winner of the fifth edition of the International Competition “Suoni d’Arpa” in 2015, in this album performs a beautiful anthology of Italian music for harp that embraces the entire Twentieth Century history up to our days: from Luigi Maurizio Tedeschi to Barbara Giuranna, through Alfredo Casella, Mario Castelnuovo Tedesco and Nino Rota, in a miscellany that contains interesting world premiere recordings. This CD is the result of the collaboration between Tactus and the Italian Harp Association and very well represents the double objective set within the “Suoni d’Arpa” competition by the two institutions: on one hand support, value and promote young talents, and, on the other, rediscover the Italian musical heritage dedicated to the harp.
