Harp and Vibraphone

1

Some time ago there was a post here from someone looking for music for harp with vibraphone (or marimba). I found a program that a friend sent me, from a performance of the duo”Harp and Vibes” which was played in Carson City, Nevada. I was amazed by their repertoire and thought others would be as well. I wish I could have heard that concert, but since they have many recordings, a second best choice is to look for their web site and hear them play from a recording. Some selections they played in Nevada:
Reverie- Debussy
Aria in Classic Style – Grandjany
Toccata-Scarlatti
Petite Valse-Hasselmans
Take Five-Desmond
Four Easy Pieces- Stravinsky
Black and Blue-Fats Waller
Chanson de la Nuit-Salzedo
Danse Macabre-Saint Saens
Strike Up the Band-Gershwin. And others. Harpist Beverly Colgan and Joe Venuto have played professionally as a duo since the 1980’s.

  1. I have their Christmas CD and love it. It is so fun. I heard from friends that their program at the AHS conference in San Francisco was a highlight of the conference. They are great!
