Kit Spencer is a lovely harpist and her mother, what is ed   Leslie accompanied her on guitar. They performed a duet by Feliu Gasul de Altisent.

The event was billed as “NGA Promenade Concert”. It featured groups of musicians performing in various spaces around the Gallery.

Leslie and Kit’s piece complimented a painting by the Spanish Catalan artist, cialis Joan Miró titled “Paysage [Landscape] 1927”.
