    Harpist

Francesca Romana Di Nicola is an unconventional harpist who walks a long, outstanding creative professional path. Her way of playing the harp, making music and composing gives new light and personality to her instrument. She reinvents and renews the concept of the harp and all its stereotypes, always on the lookout for refined sound, unexpected bold colours and astonishing character.

Miniature is the compilation of 27 small musical pieces for solo harp composed in March 2020 by Francesca Romana Di Nicola. Each one is a small world, has its own title and tells a personal story inspired by an emotion, a reflection, a childhood memory or an emblematic place for Francesca, from her past in Italy or her present in the Basque Country.

Miniature is a winding path that also evokes the images of the places they represent with their emotional charge. Each piece makes its way suggesting impressions, emotions with its incessant rhythms where the sovereign nature shows itself, inspires and governs everyday life.

[…] music that brings us closer and connects with the natural spirit, with touches of exoticism, melodic beauty and a sound of tremendous beauty, flooding every moment with harmonics. 
Ritmo classical music magazine

A lovely disc, superbly recorded, characterised by a real appreciation of what constitutes beauty.
