I’ve recently been excepted into a school with a very competitive and progressive music department. My ensemble partner is a very advanced flutist, who, unforutnately due to jaw surgery, is unable to play until October, which gives me time to learn flute/harp repetoire.
Any ideas? Advice? Encouragment? I’m also in a Wind Ensemble (I’ll think I’ll be deaf by the end of the year from that…I’m sitting behind the trumpets, next to the tuba and in front of the percussionists!…), so really any advice would be great!

There are MILLIONS of works for flute and harp, but the nicest and best, I think, is the Casilda Fantasy by Franz Doppler and Antonio Zamara.August 26, 2008 at 9:18 pm #110722kimberly-houserParticipant
This is a huge catagory of music.August 27, 2008 at 2:31 am #110723carl-swansonParticipant
There’s a sontata by J.S. Bach for flute and continuo in E flat major that works very well on harp. A nice way to perform it is to have a ‘cello double the bass line.August 28, 2008 at 9:12 am #110724zoraida-avilaParticipant
I am going to play with flute also in October, look at our program:
MÚSICAS DEL MUNDO PARA ARPA Y FLAUTA
Omar Acosta, flauta
Zoraida Ávila, arpa
P R O G R A M A
(Europa y Asia)
Reynaldo Hahn – Variaciones sobre un tema de Mozart (Austria)
Eugéne Bozza – Cinq chansons sur des thémes japonais (Francia/Japón)
Tradicional – Liu Young Hu, para arpa sola (China)
Ravi Shankar – L’Aube enchantée (India)
Witold Lutoslawsky – Tres fragmentos (Polonia)
Vincent Persichetti – Serenade Op. 10 (Estados Unidos)
Astor Piazzola – Bordel 1900 (Argentina)
Ernesto Lecuona – Comparsa, flauta sola (Cuba)
Omar Acosta – Tres Pesetas (España-Venezuela)
Zequinha de Abreu – Chorinho (Brasil)
The worrks by Hahn, Shankar and Persichetti are difficult for the flute,
but not for the harp.
I will send you the Omar Acosta’s 3 Pesetas (minds Three bagatelles).
I hope this helps you.

Thanks a million, everyone, for your advice! (And sorry I spelled ‘accepted’ as ‘excepted’–it’s been a long week!)
I’m looking forward to researching and playing all the wonderful pieces you all have listed. I’m also looking forward to starting ensemble work! A new door is opening for me!
Hope you all are having as fun a time in general as I am!
(And good luck Zoraida, with your program in October! Wish I could hear it!)
Have a good weekend!~~~Fairy
