Cantilena image
Cantilena is the love theme from the first and last movements of my Concerto Romantico for harp and strings. It is presented here as a solo piece for harpists who may wish to play it without the assistance of a string orchestra!

The melody was written in the mid 1990s when it was suggested that I might compose the score for a movie set during and after World War Two. The film was never made and a few years later I sketched improvisations on the theme for a harp and orchestra CD which in turn was never recorded. The melody haunted me thereafter and perfectly fitted harpist Rachel Talitman’s brief for a romantic concerto for her 2021 CD Paul Lewis - Romantic Music for Harp and Strings. Paul Lewis
Duration about 3½ minutes
