I’m not a harp player (unlike all of you), but I’ve included a harp part in my symphony.
I thought it would be a good idea to ask some harpists about the playability and suitability of my harp part.
If you have time, could you please listen to a mock up of movement 3, scherzo-finale and check out the harp part ?
And bear in mind:
1. Is it playable ?
2. Could some of the chords be filled in with extra notes ?
3. How much detail is needed over pedalling, or would a decent player be able to do this without a composer’s input ?
