Although the composer Thierry Pécou mostly does without experimental playing techniques, an exemplary modern harp sound emerges from among soft whispering sounds and massive chord clusters. Tone colours associatively modelled on the sparkling green of jade crystallize.
Pécou composed 'Harpe de jade' for the international harp competition of the Cité des Arts in Paris. The work is dedicated to the internationally renowned harpist Isabelle Moretti. 'Harpe de jade' is the first work of the young French composer published by Schott Music.
