I am actually working on the Moldau (Smetana) for solo harp, only the first four pages, for a wedding. It’s a request from the bride for the ceremony.
I have only a few weeks because I replace a harpist who will finally not be able to go to the wedding.
I find it particularly difficult to play well, especially for the left hand who play very fast with a lot of crecendo and decrescendo. Do you have any suggestions or advices about how working on the piece?
I memorized it easily and can play it by heart but I find that doesn’t sound so good and I think I have to work more precisely .
What could be the different the different steps to do to be able to play easily with a good sound?
Or how would you do yourself to work on the piece?
Thanks a lot for your help!
