French Reflections from Sivan Magen
French Reflections (Linn CKD473)
French Reflections, Sivan Magen’s second BBT-supported CD on the Linn label, is due for release in September 2015.
Focusing on French music written for solo harp at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries, he explores the ultimate expressivity of his beloved instrument. The repertoire features works from composers including Fauré, Debussy, Caplet and Tournier writing in the early 1900s, and Bruno Mantovani and Phillippe Schoeller a century on.
Magen’s first CD for Linn, Fantasien (CKD441), was released early in 2014 and garnered extremely favourable reviews:
“Without doubt Sivan Magen’s fine musicianship and scintillating performances on this disc will further enhance this artist’s burgeoning reputation” – Graham Williams, SA-CD.net
