    Hi everyone!

    What is one of your favorite pedal harp pieces and why?

    I hope this won’t count as cheating since I would be 93 before I’d ever be able to play it, but the c# minor Impromptu by Reinhold that Basel Sara has been posting about on another thread sure would be a nifty encore piece, and it sounds as though it would be great fun to play.

    I think we’ve pretty much settled on the fact that it was written for piano, but to my ear, it sounds better on harp than it would on piano, and here’s the best part, you can download it and print it free. The copywrite on the music appears to be 1896 or’98, so anyone who wants it can take it legally.

    I posted the URL in the Professional Harpists voume. Give it a look and see what you think!

    Hi Ann,

    It looks like a difficult piece.

    My favorites change over time, but recently(within the past year) I’ve fallen in love with the Pierne Concertstucke, particularly as played by Lily Laskine. If I ever get back to playing again, I want to learn it.

    One of my favorite pieces is Spohr’s “Fantasia, Op. 35”.

    That’s got to be Variations on a Theme in the Ancient Style by Salzedo.

    Leonard,

    I wanted to learn “Etude de Concert in E flat minor, op. 193” by Godefroid when I was first starting out.

    I really love “Spring on the Moonlit River” (as played by Dan Yu), but Carol McLaughlin’s “Danse de le Sylphes” (or something to that effect, I lost the cd box) really takes the cake. It is so amazingly played.

    Hi Rod!

    I was thinking of you when I mentioned in this thread that I love that Tournier piece.
