Alice Giles


‘The most intelligent, sensitive and technically accomplished harpist I have ever met.’ Luciano Berio

In this concert, Australia’s own virtuoso solo harpist, Alice Giles performs three great works by Bach, Britten and Berio, before breaking into some fun with Salzedo’s Concert Fantasies and his most romantic work, Ballade. A rare recital packed with variety and colour.
