    Theodore Dubois(1837-1924) was a French composer at the time of Hasselmans and Faure. He was also President of the Paris Conservatory for much of the time that Hasselmans taught there. He was definitely a follower of Faure and not Debussy, so he was very much an old school academic composer. It’s no surprise that he wrote something in tribute to Hasselmans.

    I was not aware of this composition and would be interested to hear it. I’m not aware of any publication of it. So you may have something very rare indeed. I’d be very interested in hearing it.

    I would love to find the harp part for the Dubois. I have the score which I came across many years ago at an estate sale. I played thru it using the score and thought I was a nice piece and always wondered what it sounded like with the orchestra.

    Also the score for the Dubois is available in the PD and a is on the IMSLP website.

    Theodore Dubois (1837-1924):Fantaisie for Harp: Dedicated to Alphonse Hasselmans.
    As we can see on the full score title page, the harp and piano edition reduction by the composer was published at one time, so this is not a rare publicaton.
    It was reprinted in 1998 ed. no. 730. Originally published: Paris : Heugel, c1903. Pl. no. H. &Cie. 21,478.
    Description: 1 score (33 p.) [piano] + 1 part (16 p.) [harp]; 31 cm.

    Kalmus does sell the harp solo part only: A5696 $10.00
    [And the orchestra score and parts as listed in the previous post]

    Dear Mr. S.

    I used to have this harp part, 16 pages long printed in France, but in August 2002 I gave it away to someone who needed it more: Anna-Maria Ravnopolska,of Sofia, Bulgaria.

    We could so use a timeline to place all harpists in musical and historical

    The last I heard, Roslyn Rensch was compiling a “Harp Family Tree” of historical harpists and their prominent students, hopefully from as far back as possible, up to the present day. I gave her a list that Erich Schubert (now deceased) wrote out tor me, that went back as far as Max Saal, his teacher in Germany. I think Patricia John (Houston) also contributed names. Hopefully others will come forward providing their own lineage, and we would all be able to read such a chart in American Harp Journal some day. There already exists a list in the field of violin, in print,

    I have a copy of the harp solo part from Kalmus; and also the harp and piano reduction from the original publication (Heugel).

    Max Saal (1882-1948) was student of F. Poenitz in Berlin. It is written so in Dulova’s book ” Art of harp performing”. I have no other information.
