I work chiefly with winds, brass, percussion, and sometimes orchestral strings. I have some questions:
1) Would a lever harp be too soft to hold its own in an orchestral setting?
2) What is a pedal harp with decent range that is not too big?
I’m looking for a harp that can be played by all sizes of people, that is portable, but that is also resonant and has some nice low tones. I’m trying to avoid the huge grand concert harps.
3) I’ve read about camac harps on this forum. Would you recommend those for the above question? Is there a standard range for smaller concert harps? How would I label the line (specifying the type of harp without being biased towards a company)?
Thanks much in advance!
