Debussy: Sonata for Flute, Viola & Harp (17:06)
Elizabeth Hainen, harp; Roberto Díaz, viola; Jeffrey Khaner, flute
Principal Harpist of the Philadelphia Orchestra Elizabeth Hainen’s latest release, Les Amis, features a rare pairing of works by Claude Debussy and André Caplet, exploring the composers’ friendship. The program includes the evocative and rarely heard Le Masque de la mort rouge, a piece by Caplet inspired by Edgar Allan Poe. Rounding out the recording, Hainen solos with a transcription of Debussy’s Petite Suite and Caplet’s Divertissements, and is joined by Jeffrey Khaner and Roberto Díaz in Debussy’s Trio Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp.
