    In the shadow of David and Pietà by Michelangelo. Florence, Accademy Gallery, November, 2011. Lucia Bova performs Fall for amplified harp and live electronics by the Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho. "Fall" grew out of a pianissimo tremolo which
    gives life to rhythmic patterns consisting of groups of mostly constant notes characterized by their very special dimension
    and sound. In this work one notes not only a taste for very original sound, but also the ability, I would say typical of
    Scandinavian composers, to attract the listener's attention with the simplest means and draw it into a magical world of
    echoes, light and shadows. [Lucia Bova]
    Lucia Bova is Professor of Harp at the "Niccolò Piccinni" Conservatory of Music in Bari. After completing her musical
    studies in Italy, she received a French degree in harp, under the guidance of Elisabeth Fontan-Binoche, and was awarded
    the Premier Prix à l'Unanimité. She is dedicated to the interpretation and research of repertoire for solo harp and harp with
    ensemble with a special interest in modern and contemporary repertoire. Composers such as Mencherini, Dashow, Razzi,
    Chasalow, Saylor, Ambrosini, Morricone, Giri, Sollima, Fabio Cifariello Ciardi, Bellino and Podio have all composed for her.
    She works with various ensembles such as Alter Ego, Ars Ludi, PMCE and Dissonanzen. She has given concerts in
    prestigious concert halls in Italy and the United States, Canada, Brazil, Poland, Spain and Germany. She has made
    recordings as a soloist and in ensembles for BMG Ricordi, Universal, RAI Trade, Neuma, Capstone, Mode Records,

    notazione, lo strumento e il repertorio dal '500 alla contemporaneità (The modern harp. Writing and notation, the

    international English language e-book format.
