    I’m looking for a flashy intermediate level, lever harp solo for a student. Any suggestions?

    She’s currently working on the Andres Epices.

    How about “Nataliana” by Deborah Henson-Conant?

    Very good idea!

    How about “The Minstrel’s Adieu To His Native Land” by John Thomas? It’s available in an arrangement for lever harp from Adlais Music Publishers in Wales.

    Several of Salzedo’s Suite of Eight Dances can be played on a lever harp: the Menuet, Polka, Siciliana, Tango; and several solos are in the Art of Modulating, including Petite Valse, but his best solo would be the Diatonic Variations on the Carnival in Venice theme, for lever harp.

    too funny, when I read the first line, I immediately thought of Vanille! However, have you tried Pedals on Vacation? xx

    -Handel’s Passacaille, Caroline Rempp arrangement.
    -Ank Van Campen: Variations on welsh carol

    If your student has big hands, so you can try Victor Santal’s Reencuentro con mi angel. Look at this:

    Good luck!

    Lots of Laura Zaerr’s arrangements are challenging, like River Right Rhumba. Her music is original and would certainly be unique.

    I love Laura Zaerr’s music too. I wish someone would record all of it. There are wonderful little snippets of some of her things on the Thormahlen website.

    I have Intermediate lever harp pieces available at The big “hit” is The Downstairs Spider in the Solos for Lever or Pedal harp book, and Seasons in Vancouver has just been published.

    It’s a little bit off topic… but I’m really curious how your piece ‘Seasons in Vancouver’ sounds. Are you aware of any recordings/ youtube movies? I’ve looked but I couldn’t find them…
