    Hi Lisa

    I played it with the University symphony when I had only completed 2 years of harp lessons. The harmonics are tricky but you can fake them by playing quietly an octave higher. There are 5-finger chords in each hand, but just pick the notes that you want to play.

    Try transposing the harmonics section

    As others have said, the part is pretty easy to play, and it’s not hard to follow to fit in with the ensemble, either. A really nice part–audible and fun to play.

    Thanks everyone. Really appreciate it as always.

    Barbara, Just wanted to say I really enjoy your arrangements-especially Scherezade.

    Thanks, Lisa. If you play pedal harp, you should check out Robert Maxwell’s ‘Scheherazade’, which includes a lot of the bits that don’t work well with levers.
