The most intelligent, sensitive and technically accomplished harpist I have ever met.
Alice Giles has been celebrated as one of the world’s leading harp soloists. The Australian-born musician first attracted international notice when she won First Prize in the 8th Israel International Harp Contest at the age of 21.
Regarded by Luciano Berio as the foremost interpreter of his Sequenza II, Alice has participated in tributes to Berio at the Queen Elizabeth Hall London, Salzburg Mozarteum, and at the 92nd Street Y in New York to honour his 70th birthday.
