Splendid transcription of the Goldberg Variations by harpist Catrin Finch that, to my ear, surpasses the keyboard original. Despite the brilliance of Glenn Gould, Keith Jarrett, and other interpreters, I've always found the piano or harpsichord GV recordings to be too hollow, too overtly mathematical to listen to for more than a handful of variations at a time. Yet Ms. Finch's version was and is completely captivating -- at once musically rigorous and meditative. And difficult to tear oneself away from.

Speechless. Glorious.
