Holly, if anyone would have a copy of an obscure harp work by Bochsa, it would be the dedicated scholar of Bochsa, Patricia John in Houston. She has devoted years, and a whole room in her house, for research on Bochsa. You can e-mail me privately and I’ll tell you how to contact her.
Please note I have published recently the first biography on Nicoals Bochsa (unfortunately in French). I have also gathered lots of music sheets (though not the andante sostenuto…).
If you somebody around you speaks French, you can order my book by sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org (price : $15 postage included)
Michel- Many years ago when I moved to Boston(from Paris) I visited the Loeb Library at Harvard just to see if they had any harp music. What I found were volumes and volumes of music by Bochsa. As I remember it was mostly or entirely solo pieces written on various Opera themes. But it’s been so many years since I was there that I don’t remember specifically. You might contact them to see what exactly they have. But I do remember finding TONS of stuff by Bochsa.
