We’re excited to welcome harp and flute duo ‘The Juniper Project’, comprising Greek flutist Anna Rosa Mari and Welsh harpist Eira Lynn Jones, who have recorded an album of Romantic works both popular and less well known including a couple of surprises.
Eira Lynn Jones is currently Head of Harp at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, England and is a regular performer both in solo recitals and in orchestral and chamber settings, and for a time was a member of the Manhattan Contemporary Music Ensemble, playing around the USA from New York to the Hollywood Bowl; she has also made appearances on British TV and has taught in several countries. Her debut solo CD including a mix of classical and folk pieces played on harp and clarsach met with notable success.
Anna Rosa Mari graduated from the Royal Northern and while still a student, was appointed solo flute of the Greek National Opera Chamber Orchestra. She has performed with leading orchestras including the BBC Philharmonic, Hallé, European Union Chamber Orchestra and Malta Philharmonic and gives solo and chamber recitals regularly. Like her duo partner she has a keen interest in contemporary music. She is also very active in community and outreach work, and has presented music in refugee camps as part of the Greek El Sistema program and worked in India for children in extreme poverty.
The Juniper Project’s album is scheduled for release in September (Divine Art Records DDA 25179).
