    I am looking for compositions or arrangements for this combination.

    When doing your (google, yahoo, etc.) search, you may want to try putting harp and accordion in quotes, such as:

    “harp accordion” sheet music

    Once in the music websites, you may need to put them in quotes again in their own particular search engine.

    I’m thinking adapting music might be a little

    Alexandra, you don’t have to look any further, I have the answer for you, and you won’t believe it….. You just happened to stumble into the right place at the right time.

    There is a duo group in South Africa who do exactly this. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it.

    Hey…I’m ‘rather surprised’!

    I wonder whether they have ever seen the famous Gary Larson “The Far Side” cartoon in which there are two signs: “Welcome to heaven; here’s your harp” and “Welcome to hell; here’s your accordion”. (Actually, I have heard some amazing accordion players, but I guess Gary Larson had heard a few not-so-good ones.)

    Then there’s the “Rhymes With Orange” cartoon, with an average joe at the gates of heaven, which looks alot like an exclusive club with a velvet rope, and St Peter looking like a bouncer (muscle shirt, tatoo, key chain, sunglasses) holding a list, and the guy says, “Check the list again, I’m friends with the harpist.”

    A wild guess: contact some Austrian or Bavarian publishers…

    Your post reminded me of the Bosch Triptych (painted in 1504) where the harp was placed in hell (with alot of other musical instruments).

    Elizabeth – they have that cartoon on the wall in their lounge.

    The harpist Meta Epstein recorded a CD of harp and accordian music with Abel Mambreani on accordian. It’s a very entertaining CD, called Passion.

    I recently premiered a piece by Carei Thomas for harp and accordian. It is a tender, lyrical piece called, “Landing”. I can send you his email link if you like.

    Thank you very much for all the replies and help.

    Andy, I tried to look up Meta Epstein’s website, but whatever I get on Google, does not take me into it.

    Hi, Alexandra:

    I’m sorry, what I meant was I don’t think her website is functional anymore, as when I type it in, I get “Cannot display webpage”.
