    Hello harpists! Quick question for you all out there, I’m applying to graduate performance programs and I need a piece from the classical period. Any and all suggestions greatly appreciated!

    Take a look at the sonatas by Meyer or Krumpholtz. There are a lot to choose from!

    I agree with the Naderman suggestion. The 7th is the most difficult, but because it is so technical it sounds like a study. The 6th on the other hand is difficult but because it’s melodic, allows for more musicality.

    Good luck whatever you choose

    Dussek is the classical master when it comes to harp, followed by Spohr, Boeildieu, Krumpholtz, Meyer and many others.
