Robin Chudy, harp and Peter H. Bloom, flute
Soundjewel Productions, SJ.240.1, CD $14.97
This sachet of classic and exotic harp and flute music was inspired by the elegant ritual of afternoon tea. It is the ideal accompaniment to tea-time, or any time an infusion of relaxation and euphoria is needed. Previously based in Boston, harpist Robin Chudy played the harp daily for fourteen years at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, where she developed a style suited to relaxed listening in the Tea Lounge and Cafe, and acquired a broad repertoire of classical and lighter compositions, many her own arrangements. Well-known to our website visitors, Peter H. Bloom is a consummate flutist, NSM editorial consultant, and NSM contributing composer and arranger.
