Singer and Harpist Suite is a collection of songs and tunes that Anna has put together to advertise her talents. The suite consists of:
Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown) was originally released by The Beatles on their 1965 album Rubber Soul. It tells the story of an affair that John Lennon once had in a way intended (unsuccessfully) to hide the details from Cynthia, his wife at the time.
Court and Spark was originally released by Joni Mitchell on her 1974 album Court and Spark. It tells the story of a series of encounters with a man who is looking for a woman to court and spark.
Moon River was originally recorded by Audrey Hepburn for the soundtrack of the 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It is a romantic song about traveling, just to see the world.
Anna gives us a virtuoso performance of all 3 pieces in a sweet, laid-back style. Each song is instantly recognisable from the very first notes on the harp and the expert harp playing provides a perfect accompaniment to the superb singing.
And here is a video of Anna just playing the harp, without singing.
