Here's Ralf Kleemann's forth solo album for Celtic harp featuring music from - and about - Brittany:

"Finistère is the westernmost part of Brittany, where continent and Atlantic ocean meet, which has carved the region into a partly harsh, partly gentle landscape. As unique as the region are the people and the music—of all "Celtic" music styles, Breton music was always the one that inspired me the most, in a hard to describe, direct fashion and beyond all language barriers."

"While traditional Breton music had been a major inspiration, Ralf goes for a Pan-Celtic sound. His execution is muscular and confident while being emotional and melodic at the same time."

Hugs & Kisses

CD, harp solo (2010/2013); total time 61:15

With "Hugs & Kisses", Ralf Kleemann presents his third album with music for the Celtic harp. Most of the tracks, which are generously enriched with solo parts, were composed during various journeys and concert tours throughout Europe.
On this album there are musette waltzes, an Irish love song, a tango-mélange, as well as a Scottish presto allegro, originally a pipe tune. The title track, "Hugs & Kisses," is a little suite in four parts.


»The album shows a master at work. His crystal clear, melodic way of playing intrigues me. His soft, almost shy, way of playing makes that the listener hears every detail of the compositions. Kleemann has the talent to express emotion with music, and that is something not many musicians are able of doing. For me, not a Harp expert in any way, this is just a strong album with music that touches me.« – Eelco Schilder, FolkWorld

Tides

CD, harp solo (2005); total time 57:33

"Tides" is Ralf Kleemann's second solo album, entirely comprised of his own compositions.
12 pieces, new and of their own kind, display the full character of the Celtic harp. "Tides" was inspired by the Irish Atlantic coast, in whose vicinity Ralf Kleemann lived for five years.

»The twelve original compositons of Irish and Breton nature make you feel like sitting right at the Atlantic coast. Somewhere beyond the ocean lies the land of prophecy, youth, and immortality. ... Who knows what happens when Ralf Kleemann will have passed the number of his harp strings in years!« – FolkWorld
