Written for harpist Olivia Jageurs, this suite was conceived chiefly as a harmonic exploration of the harp, which moves between a virtuosic stand in some places, and a more vacant intimacy in others. The five movements are linked by a through running rhythm, whilst the harmonic language moves through different levels of chromaticism before settling into a more typical ‘white note’ mode for the final Air. The ‘journey’ of the suite as a whole is set up in principle by the brief Prelude.

Suite for Harp was first performed by Olivia Jageurs in May 2013 at the Royal Academy of Music.
