Harp Sonatas

20th Century Harp Sonatas

 has been nominated for

Best Instrumental Soloist Performance (without Orchestra)

in the 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards

This CD contains five original compositions by Pierick Houdy, Alfredo Casella, Nicolas Flagello, Paul Hindemith and Germaine Tailleferre.


"...marvelously performed. Sarah Schuster Ericsson's meld of clean lines, musical expression and absolute ease make this a fantastic addition to any music listening."

- Harp Column Magazine. 2010


"... Ericsson's approach to the Flagello is richly expansive. Excellently played and expertly recorded."

- Fanfare Magazine. 2010


"There is nothing she can't do superlatively well. Her technique is unimpeachable, and she produces a strong firm tone. Strongly recommended, even to those who normally shy away from harp recitals; its that good."

- Audiophile. 2010
