If you look closely, you may see the pedals on the bottom of the harp. The pedal or concert harp is a technologically advanced instrument, particularly distinguished by its use of "pedals", foot controlled devices which can alter the pitch of given strings, making the instrument fully chromatic and thus able to play a wide body of classical repertoire.
Another fantastic soloist performance by cellist Samuel Magill, here with Ben on the piano performing Haydn's Sonata in C Major Hob. 6, Nr. 6 .
Bravo - Bravo - Bravo - we can't wait to be there again next Friday for the final concert.
