    I am studying Grandjany’s Fantaisie sur un theme de Haydn for a competition, and I have a couple questions regarding markings in the score.

    Do you have Grandjany’s Music for the Harp book?

    Thanks for your help! I do not have Grandjany’s book, but will definitely look into getting it.

    Tacye, could you perhaps give the publisher of this book – I would also love to get it.

    Esther- I just went and looked at that page. Given where he uses that symbol(the bracket with the letter R inside) I’m gonna take a wild guess. The R with the bracket means right hand and I’m guessing that he is emphasizing the fact that the right hand plays on the beat, meaning that the rolled chord starts before the beat so that the melody note will land exactly on the beat and not after it. I’ll be curious to see if anybody can find Grandjany’s own explanation.

    Oops!! I posted this under the wrong thread! It should be under the Bach-Grandjany Etudes thread. I’ll repost it there.

    Hi Tacye,can you please tell me where i can find this book it would be great if there is a DvD with it too.

    The book is not a method or anything- so no DVD! It is a compilation of Grandjany arrangements including the Francisque Pavane and Bransles and should be available wherever you get your music.
