I’m looking for suggestions for some substantial harp and violin pieces, on par with the Saint-Saens, but perhaps a little meatier than something like the meditation from Thais or the Ibert Entr’acte.
There are at least four sonatas by Spohr for violin and harp, and they tend to be harp-killers. Krumpholtz wrote six. Boccherini may have written six or they may have been published as harp. You can do baroque sonatas with continuo. You can do my Chassidic Suite for violin and harp. There are some pieces by Roman Ryterband. Cavatina by Henk Badings. Some pieces are disguised as flute and harp music, some as violin and piano. You can do the Lark Ascending by Vaughan-Williams from the piano accompaniment.
Try Delius’s “Lullaby for a Modern Baby,” from 5 Piano Pieces. You can see the score at http://www.music-scores.com/midi.php?sheetmusic=Delius_4_Lullaby
