Harp Guitar | 2009

“The harp guitar has a tradition of over 200 years and is a combination of  the common guitar and a harp.  Unlike in Europe, the harp guitar has become well established in America.  The Dyer model, that is played there, was built for the first time in 1906.   The six additional bass strings in the style of a harp have been built onto an extended body without a fingerboard.  This extension allows the soloist to play melody, accompaniment and bass at the same time. The rich, warm and full sound of the harp guitar virtually entices the guitar player into playing solo.  As can be heard on this CD, Antonio Koudele also could not resist giving this instrument its rightful place as a solo instrument.”All songs on this album were played by Antonio Koudele himself, without any accompaniment of other backing instruments.

 

“…when Antonio Koudele plays the harp guitar, you will believe you are listening to the lyre of Orpheus … how fantastic the harp guitar sounds, when being played by such a Paganini of the guitar.”
