Review of "Jasmine" by Harp Column Magazine (May 2017)

Below is a recent review written by Jan Jennings at the HARP COLUMN Magazine (May/June Issue 2017) on my arrangement of Chinese folk song, "Jasmine," for solo harp.

https://www.harpcolumn.com/asian-inspiration/


Excerpts from the REVIEW:

"Dr. Teresa Suen-Campbell has recently published her intermediate arrangement of “Jasmine.” She explains there are two different versions of this popular Chinese folk song and her arrangement combines them both. After Puccini used the melody in his opera, Turandot, the tune became familiar in the West. Today in China, it is nearly as popular and important as their national anthem.

Teresa Suen-Campbell has arranged the Chinese folk song “Jasmine” for solo pedal harp.



Presented in 2/4, her arrangement begins with a trill and a long arpeggio that carries you into the upper register for the beginning of the first theme. The familiar melody begins at measure 21 with the left hand playing groups of three sixteenth notes starting off the beat. Following an upward scale gliss, the melody is repeated an octave higher, accompanied by chords on the off-beat in the left hand. A fast, long, ascending and descending arpeggio introduces the first theme again, and both hands are equally engaged to the end of the piece.
This three-page arrangement is available as a pdf download at harpcolumnmusic.com where you can also view the first page. You can also watch a video of Dr. Suen-Campbell playing the piece. Hers is a very dulcet rendering of the tune."

Review of CD "Longing" by Whole Note Magazine (Sept 2016)

Here is a recent review of my harp CD Longing by Mr David Olds, Editor of DISCoveries, Whole Note Magazine, Canada:  
http://www.thewholenote.com/index.php/booksrecords2/editorscorner

"Another disc perfect for a quiet mood is Teresa Suen’s debut CD Longing(teresasuen.com). Suen has the distinction of being the first Chinese harpist to obtain a Doctor of Music degree......While the music is more or less modern – including works by Paul Hindemith and John Cage – it is surprising how mellow the overall feel of the disc is. ....... Suen has chosen a well-balanced program focusing on calmness and warmth, beautifully played. She will be a welcome addition to the local music scene."
