listen to harp

Elizabeth-Jane Baldry takes her audiences on an entertaining journey through the history of harp music performing captivating harp solos from five centuries.

Refined Renaissance, glittering Baroque, naughty Victorian Fairies and contemporary - but comprehensible - music all find their way into her recital programmes interspersed with the stories behind the music - tales of romance, scandal and tragedy. 

"I laughed, I cried. In forty years of the society, this is the best performance we have ever had." - audience member

"As soon as I heard her begin to play, I just wanted to lie down and listen for the rest of my life" - audience member

"Sometimes in life, magical things happen that stay with you forever - tonight was such an experience." - audience member


"It is hard to say just which was more pleasurable - the exquisite playing or the often deliciously outrageous stories of composers' lives that Elizabeth Jane recounted in between the music"

- Bath Chronicle
