Franziska Huhn performs Salzedo’s “Variations on a Theme in the Ancient Style” live on WGBH’s Classical New England in 2006:
“I saw the harp and said I would be a harpist.” A short interview with Franziska Huhn:
“Freed from both the shackles and safety of precedent, it becomes our honorable task as musicians to be the first to interpret and understand the composer’s creation, and ultimately to present the new work to an audience as the treasure it is.”
“I saw the harp when I was six years old and completely fell in love with it. I finally was set up to start at age nine, after piano lessons [among other instruments,] and since then, have lived my dream of becoming a professional harpist,” said Huhn. “Discovering new repertoire with old
friends and sharing it with your local community is one of the best privileges a musician can have”

“Franziska Huhn’s harp triggering a glittering hall of mirrors”

“maestro Ian Watson had the players in peak form (largely drawn from his Arcadia Players Baroque Ensemble) including a swirling, torrid harp solo by Franziska Huhn in the first act that could have melted a glacier”

“Harpist Franziska Huhn provided a sweet accompaniment to the music’s softer spots.”

“Earle Brown’s exploration of form and formlessness, time and timelessness, sound and silent, old and new, works brilliantly in this new world of listening to music as though it is streamed directly from one mind to another with no barriers or mediation in-between.”

“The third and simplest reiteration of this prayer, sung and played just before the end with heartbreaking eloquence by mezzo-soprano Lynn Torgove, clarinettist Bruce Creditor, and harpist Franziska Huhn, is the deep moment of interior quietude everything has been leading up to.”

“Harpist Franziska Huhn was also featured prominently throughout the evening in both Britten’s Ceremony of Carols and Rutter’s Angels’ Carol).”

Titled “A Celestial Christmas” the SRO concert (now in its sixth season) also featured internationally acclaimed harpist Franziska Huhn.

“Franziska Huhn and Nathan Horvath both gave strong performances”
