The Aberdeen Harp Project

Welcome to the Aberdeen Harp Project, an initiative of sound initiative supported by the north-east branch of The Clarsach Society.

Following discussions around the lack of available new music for lever harp players of intermediate standard, we decided to commission new pieces from established composers that would stretch players and introduce them to working with new techniques and in new contexts. The first three pieces for the Aberdeen Harp Project were performed in a concert at Glenbuchat Hall as part of soundfestival 2014.

Since then we have added new works to the project each year from composers including Sally BeamishSnorri Sigfús Birgisson, Ruth Wall, Pete Stollery and Sirin Pancaroğlu.

We want to make the Aberdeen Harp Project as accessible as possible and the pieces are all available to download here. Have a browse and enjoy!
