This recording is unique. It combines the sounds of two instruments which are almost as far removed culturally as possible within the panoply of musical traditions of the world. The instruments are the shakuhachi and the concert harp.
Riley Lee and Marshall McGuire first performed together for the Sydney Spring Festival of New Music in 1996, playing works by Anne Boyd. Two of her pieces are included on this recording, Goldfish through Summer Rain and Cloudy Mountain. Both of these compositions were originally composed for the Western transverse flute and piano. Upon hearing the harp and shakuhachi combination, Anne Boyd stated that this was exactly the sound she had in mind when composing the pieces.
