"Mosaïque Musicale"


Advanced

The recently rediscovered Swedish harpist and composer Anton Edvard Pratté (1796-1875), once described by his contemporaries as "the Harpking of the North", wrote over two hundred pieces and enjoyed an illustrious career as a harp virtuoso, both in Scandinavia and Continental Europe, alongside other illustrious figures such as Elias Parish-Alvars (1808-1849) and Nicholas-Charles Bochsa (1789-1856). Interestingly, a critic compared Pratté´s playing with the latter, stating that Pratté was "the teacher" and Bochsa "the student"!
 
We are extremely grateful to harpist Delphine Constantin-Reznik for the opportunity for us to be the first to publish Pratté's harp music and for her dedication, hard work, enthusiam and diligence throughout this huge project. It is through her passion for pursuing new repertoire for the harp and researches in Swedish archives which has resulted in the unexpected discovery of the works of this Romantic harp virtuoso and prolific composer who, coincidentally, lived in the very same region and town as herself: Norrköping, Eastern Sweden.
 
This is one of numerous Edvard Pratté compositions to be published by Alaw in the near future.
