Romance for the Harp
Painting by William-Adolphe BOUGUEREAU: the Birth of Venus, 1879
Romance was written during the same year as the Prelude for piano (1994).
This refined and melodious work, whose romanticism exposed at the beginning seeps forth in a more lyrical tone, yet remains tinged with nostalgia.
Like the Ballad, Romance for the Harp encompasses a broad range of emotional expressions.
