Since 2007 Floraleda Sacchi performs regularly Philip Glass' works on Harp.
She realized Glass' music works perfectly on Harp and since then she became for many years the only harpist regularly performing worldwide his music in concerts, tv and radio broadcast: performances were listed on official Glass' website and some Glass' pieces were recorded live for the American Harp Society as important contribution to Harp repertoire.
Beside live performances, in 2007 Floraleda recorded 'Open the Kingdom' for the CD 'Suite en Duo' published by PHILIPS label (Cat. No. 476 5978).
In 2008, she included the five 'Metamorphosis' in her celebrated recording 'Minimal Harp' (DECCA, cat. No. 476 3172).
Finally, in 2012, she recorded this album for Portraits' Collection by Amadeus Arte with a lot of world premières for the Harp and with a completely new sound approach opening a new dimension for this music.
''I'm pretty sure fans of Glass will be stunned by these renditions.''
''The way Floraleda performs Philip Glass goes beyond the wonder.''
