    I’m looking for chamber music by American composers for any instrument combination including harp. I’m familiar with the standards like the Persichetti Serenade or Rochester-Young Song of the Lark, but I was also hoping to find more suggestions especially those that are more than just flute and harp.

    I really apreciate your help and suggestions!

    Alan Hovaness – Garden of Adonis (flute & harp)

    Alexandra du Bois
    American composer. L’Arc des Étoiles (Arc of the Stars) (2007) for flute, harp and percussion (7’)

    George Crumb:
    -Ancient Voices of Children (1970), for mezzo-soprano, boy soprano, oboe, mandolin, harp, amplified piano (and toy piano), and percussion (three players)
    -Federico’s Little Songs for Children. Soprano, flute/piccolo/alto flute/bass flute, and harp
