The Toccata Seconda & Ligature is a tour de force of idiomatic harp writing with its dramatic opening, marked chromaticism and typically Neapolitan variety of texture.

from notes by Andrew Lawrence-King © 1987

La Toccata Seconda & Ligature est un tour de force d’écriture pour harpe idiomatique, comme l’attestent son ouverture théâtrale, son chromatisme appuyé et sa diversité de texture typiquement napolitaine.

extrait des notes rédigées par Andrew Lawrence-King © 1987
Français: Hypérion

Die Toccata Seconda & Ligature ist mit ihrer dramatischen Eröffnung, der hervorstechenden Chromatik und dem für Neapel typischen strukturellen Abwechslungsreichtum eine Glanzleistung idiomatischer Harfenkomposition.
