The newly signed harpist Magdalena Hoffmann releases her debut single Respighi: 6 Pieces for Piano, P. 44: No. 3. Notturno. Lento (Version for Harp) today. The multitalented performer, principal harpist of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, is in high demand both as a chamber musician and as a soloist, even though her chosen instrument is not one that always leads to a solo career.
‘The great challenge of my instrument is to be innovative. It has such primeval roots on the one hand and so many possibilities that are still waiting to be explored on the other. It can be theatrical, poetic, comic, lyrical, magic, eerie – there are so many stories to be told.’ – Magdalena Hoffmann
