Harp Trio completed

In August 2019 Russo completed work on his Harp Trio -- a one movement work running about 10 minutes for 3 Harps.  The piece was composed for Tulsa University Harp teacher Lorelei Barton and her students -- in gratitude for Russo's TU residency at the end of March 2019.   If you would like to listen to the computer generated sound file of his Harp Trio you may do so below.
