listening challenge week 8

Judy Loman - to whom we owe so much - (if you're enjoying learning to play the harp with me, you do owe a good bit of that to her)  She's the Canadian grandmother of the harp, and a national treasure! 

And lest you're ready to throw in the towel, this was recorded 2 years ago. One year ago, she celebrated her 80th birthday in Toronto with a big recital.

She is playing a whole variety of pieces. Extra points to anyone who can name them!!

    What dexterity and speed with #1 & 2 fingering at minute marker 5.20 seconds. Opening and closing technique from 7 minutes on is really good too.

    A master class on closing the fingers and keeping the hands relaxed. I'll try even harder now! Sorry, I can't name any of the pieces...
