"Two harpists play and sing words from a medieval hymn in what is one of the most striking and beautiful of Stockhausen’s late creations." - London Southbankcentre (2008)
Freude (Joy) is a 40-minute piece, combining two diatonic harps into one chromatic instrument. The fact that the harpists double as vocalists completes the synergy. Freude premiered in the Duomo of Milan in 2006.
