Jennifer Pratt-Walter – “inscription of Seikilos/Saltarello”.

Hey guys! 🙂

I don’t think I’ve ever shared anything from this harpist with you before. She is really in love with her chosen instrument and like quite a lot of harpists, she is a certified healing musician. As you can figure out from the title, this is actually a set of two compositions. The first one clearly refers to the Seikilos Epitaph – which is the oldest complete musical composition in the world that has survived to this day, written by a man called Seikilos to a woman called Euterpe. – I don’t know if this is her full rendition of this composition, or perhaps only a fragment or something loosely based on it, as I’ve never heard it in any other version. Saltarello, in turn, is, as you may know, a type of Italian dance.
