Description:

The harp and the flute are among the oldest instruments in the world. These two instruments have been depicted in paintings and sculptures from as early as the beginnings of the Cycladic civilization (2800-2300 BC) in what is now Turkey and Greece. Paired together, the harp and flute can produce an ethereal sound that calms, uplifts, soothes, and delights the listener. Their musicality has been captured by the great composers of the baroque and classical periods all the way to moderns like Shostakovitch and Corigliano.

Mystic Vista is a collection of songs Robert Hutmacher has written over the past eight years for musicals, plays, and recitals, together with five short pieces from the French repertoire. He and Denise LaGiglia have performed together for years, and this recording brings their musicianship to a larger audience. The title, cover photo, and much of the music flows from Bob's life, research, and prayer in his "second home"-Assisi, Italy. In addition to that unique Umbrian flavor heard in his previous recordings, there are the usual Hutmacher surprises. Mystic Vista conveys a wide variety of holy, emotional, and artistic moments, sure to captivate the listener. Duets, solos, and even improvisations display talent and professionalism; the diversity of style will assure one is connected with the aural beauty of these timeless instruments.
