Sivan Magen harp


Virtuoso harpist Sivan Magen is a man in love: seduced by the sound of the harp at an early age, he was wedded to the idea of playing it before he even knew what it was. Physical and emotional pleasures are found in the intimacy of touching the strings and embracing an instrument too often under-appreciated or misunderstood. BBT filmed with Sivan Magen on tour with Scottish Chamber Orchestra in January 2014 and in the recording studio for Linn Records. Magen has just recorded his second solo recital CD for Linn Records, Turns of the Centuries featuring French music from the beginnings of the 20th and 21st centuries (scheduled for release in June 2015). His first CD, Fantasien, was released earlier this year to wide critical acclaim
