    Who here has played the Britten Harp Suite? I will probably be starting it this summer and I was wondering what were the favorite movements of the harpists here?

    Also if anyone wants to give me any tips or warnings that would be greatly appreciated.

    cheers-

    My favorite movements are the first, and the Hymn (ode to st denio). I haven’t quite gotten around to the rest of them…

    It’s a FABULOUS piece! You will learn soooo much from working on it. I love the drama of the first mvt. – the 2nd and 4th mvts will open your eyes to many technical and tonal possibilities. The third mvt is mystical and enchanting. The last mvt, I found to be a bit of a dirge, but still wonderful in its own right and a challenge to make it interesting to the listener! Have fun and experiment!
