I once had a harp part which opened with say, 4 or more flats in the first bar then many sharps in the second bar or vice versa and I knew that the composer had simply composed different harmonies but then I thought why even think a harp can play any combination at any moment…! It was easy enough to change the first bar and get into the 2nd bar and the composer was about so I let him know it wasn’t very practical.
