You have a number of good thoughts here, Carl. My only question is
regarding the wrist. In my Salzedo training, I did learn wrist
oscillation outward (never inward) and wrist release outward in certain
passages. I understand that it is possible to release from the fingers,
wrist, elbow, or occassionally even the shoulder depending on the
nature of the dynamics and quality of sound needed. I’m currently
studying with a primarily French trained harpist who studied some with
Grandjany. From my information
it seems correct that the French technique makes more use of wrist
flexibility, but that it is also important in Salzedo technique.
