Valérie Milot has received numerous competition awards. Her career as a soloist and chamber musician has been consistently rising over the past few years. For this recording, she is accompanied by Les Violons du Roy, under the musical direction of Bernard Labadie. The three concertos of this recording have all been composed during eras in which the harp had yet to be perfected to its full potential. However, Handel, Mozart and Boieldieu's concertos all remain central works of the harp repertoire. Milot and the musicians have an undeniable artistic complicity and offer numerous wonderful musical moments on this new recording.

Each week, KDFC Members get an exclusive link thru eNotes newsletter to download a free mp3 from some of the biggest releases in the world of Classical music. This week's pick is Valérie Milot performing the first movement of Handel's Concerto for Harp in B Flat Major.
