Our orchestra is performing Enescu’s Symphony #1 for the very first time. It has two very difficult harp parts. If you see this on your orchestra’s program, be sure to get the music at least 3 weeks early, because there are a lot of notes to learn and absorb into your fingers. The finale movement is very fast, though not too exposed., and the counting is very tricky. Many of the rehearsal numbers make no sense (halfway through phrases, or at the ends of phrases instead of the beginning). However, it is a beautiful piece and well worth the effort. We are actually really enjoying it now.
