    Don’t you have itunes? Many recordings of each by well-known harpists there.

    Also, Mr. Grandjany hiimself recorded the Haydn Fantaisie, in the LP recording that used to be available through the AHS. Don’t know if that’s been remastered to CD.

    Dear Hannah,

    If you are serious enough about music to be entering the AHS competition, may I suggest that if you plan on a career in music these days, it is absolutely essential to understand the marketplace and how it has changed?

    You MUST familiarize yourself with these methods of distribution (and their impact on what you can expect to earn), since CDs are quickly going the way of the 8-track tape. (I have a good friend who currently makes a very good living from CDs alone, but even he says he figures one more year and he won’t be able to sell physical discs at all.)

    This is the world you will be living in and you need to start thinking of how you will function there, unless of course you are just entering the AHS competition for fun.

    I listened to the one on YouTube straight away, the Fantaisie one, by Jennifer Campbell.

    Just moved to the Allentown area and I’m looking for other harpists or musicians to get together to make music and have some fun.

    Hello Dale,

    I live in Oregon and have a wonderful teacher who teaches all over the country.

    I just stumbled on this thread by accident and thought that I should give some more imput as my teacher has given me some recordings since I last posted.

    On Jana Bouskava’s CD Harfa she has all three movements of the Pescetti as well as the Fantasie.

    On Elizabeth Remy’s CD Whirlwind she has all three movements of the Pescetti, the Fantasie AND Whirlwind.

    As mentioned before, on the CD Music
