Rainbow over Mountain



This was a winner at the BBC Radio 3, 30 Second Composition Competition in 2020.

It's a meditational piece for solo harp 

The beginning and end of the piece evoke the raindrops falling out of rhythm as the shower slows to a halt.

The middle section hopefully evokes a sense of wonder in the listener. I feel the harp lends itself perfect to the depiction of raindrops. 

It was inspired by a rainbow in the Welsh Hills. 

There is a version also played by Louise Martin, Harpist with the BBC Symphony Orchestra below:
