Automates Pour Harpe by : Bernard Andres
Born in 1941 in Belfort; Bernard Andrès won a first place prize in harp at the Conservatoire de Paris before joining the Radio-France Philharmonic Orchestra as a soloist (1969-2005). This prolific composer defines himself as a “mélodiste”: “Basically; I think that the instrument I prefer is the voice. I would sometimes turn the harp into singing; but it's very difficult.” His music is undeniably part of a French spirit dominated by melodic charm; conciseness of form; and harmonic refinement. Published in 1977; the Automates collection presents itself as a continuation in the old style where twelve short dance movements follow each other: Menuet - Pavane - Bourrée - Sarabande - Gaillarde - Sicilienne - Gigue -Tambourin - Rigaudon - Gavotte - Passepied - Marche.
