Thanks to her enthusiasm, the instrument was to enjoy a revival of interest that produced an abundant repertory. Available once more from the hamronia mundi archived, "Christie's collaboration with the superb Xavier de Maistre is an exquisitely refined account of Krumpholtz's enchanting Fifth Harp Concerto" (BBC Music Magazine).
