The Los Angeles-based Harpsody duo (Tomoko Sato and Kaffee Mimun) has been performing together since 2003. We explore a wide and intriguing range of harp duo repertoire from Baroque to Modern, as well as our own arrangements and compositions. This album features the original harp duo pieces by B. Andres, J-M. Damase, and Carlos Salzedo, in addition to rarely performed, yet beautifully composed pieces by L. Otten and D. Argento. Not only you will hear the rich sonority of the harps, but also the modern effects that are discovered in 20th century by experimental composers- percussive use of the instrument, tapping on the soundboard, xylophone effect, snapping and hitting strings, fingernail glissando and harmonics. Harpsody perform throughout Southern California. The past year Harpsody has been awarded a Grant from the Co-op Press Commission Assistance Grand Program for composer, Sy Brandon, a professor emeritus of music from Millersville University, Millersville, PA, to write a work for two harps. Tomoko and Kaffee would love to hear your feedback. Email us your questions and opinions!
