Netty's Garden for harp (Elisabeth Millenaar)
Netty’s Garden by Elisabeth Millenaar
Netty’s Garden is inspired by the image of a young girl exploring the garden.
Freesia. (1.48 min)
Gentle flowers, wonderful shapes. She would like to pick them, but decides they look better in the garden.
The Swing. (1.42 min)
Netty on the swing, swings higher and higher, the sky is blue and when she’s done she jumps off.
Anemone. (1.46 min)
From the open window piano music drifts into the garden: it is her grandmother playing in a 19th century style. She admires the anemones with the music in the background.
Frog in the pond. (1.01 min)
Wandering through the garden. Netty arrives at the pond, where a frog catches her eye. The frog swims happily from a rock to a waterlily leaf, and climbs onto it. When Netty gets too close, it jumps into the water again.
Cloudplay. (3.08 min)
Stretched out in the grass, Netty looks up to the clouds. As they drift by, the shapes tell stories.
Dragonfly. (2.05 min)
A dragonfly catches Netty’s eye as it hovers close by. She studies its gossamer wings.
