In ‘JOY’ Evelyn Huber presents her harp as a solo instrument in combination with the brilliant sound of an orchestra
Evelyn Huber belongs to a new generation of harpists who have freed the instrument from its corset of classical music and given it new tonal colors and forms of expression, that are impressively experienced in her latest album, ‘JOY.’
Most recently ‘CALM’ was released, Evelyn Huber’s new harp solo album, recorded in the intimate environment of the home studio, it focused entirely on the pure harp sound. The follow up and counterpoint to ‘CALM’ is Huber’s latest work, ‘JOY.’
In ‘JOY’ Evelyn Huber presents her harp as a solo instrument in combination with the brilliant sound of an orchestra, together with the Philharmonie Salzburg under the direction of Elisabeth Fuchs, and profits magnificently from all the possibilities of playing together.
‘JOY’ is the quintessence of a multifaceted musical life. During her classical harp studies in Munich and the USA, Evelyn Huber began to play with various bands and ensembles. She accompanied the Klezmer king Giora Feidman, was very successful with the trio Lauschgold with violinist Martina Eisenreich and performance percussionist Wolfgang Lohmeier, as well in a duo with saxophonist Mulo Francel . It was Francel who introduced Huber to Quadro Nuevo in 2008, and began a successful 12 year career performing all over the world with Germany’s most successful world music band. The combination of these experiences has proliferated her harp playing style in the direction of jazz, improvisation and world music, all of which can now be heard in ‘JOY.’ more
