Ralf Kleemann


New Celtic Harp

Ralf Kleemann - Tides - Neue Keltische Harfe

With "Tides", Ralf Kleemann presents his second solo album for New Celtic Harp.

Following the ongoing and encouraging feedback for his first album, "Phrydotia," he spent much time on creating more of his own original compositions. 12 pieces, new and of their own kind, display the full character of the Celtic harp. "Tides" was majorly inspired by the Irish Atlantic coast, in whose vicinity Ralf lived for five years.

The 'New Celtic Harp' is an evolutionary redesign of traditional instruments with generous proportions and a construction that is fully optimised for a rich and pleasant sound.

Further down on this page you will find additional bonus material, maxi versions, photos and some production notes.

»The twelve original compositons of Irish and Breton nature make you feel like sitting right at the Atlantic coast. Somewhere beyond the ocean lies the land of prophecy, youth, and immortality. There, humans and gods dwell together peacefully in a timeless world of infinite beauty.

Who knows what happens when Ralf Kleemann will have passed the number of his harp strings in years.«
