    Can anyone tell me if there are recordings of Pearl
    Chertok’s “Harpicide At Midnight” and “Beige Nocturne” from her
    Around The Clock Suite? In addition to the harpist & record title,
    I’d be glad to also know the label and any catalogue numbers, if
    possible. Thanks for help!

    I’m not at home at the moment so I can’t look at the music to see if there are any metronome markings, but there’s a performance of Harpicide At Midnight on YouTube which can be found via their search box – possibly the other pieces are on there too. It’s worth a look. The rendition of Harpicide is more or less the speed I always hear it played, though Chertok herself takes it a little slower. (Catherine, correct me if I’m wrong on this! Writing from memory -) Certainly it would work at a more relaxed tempo, as long as it has some forward drive and energy.

    These are GREAT pieces – you’ll have fun playing them. Best of luck –

    Bonnie

    Hello!

    Could somebody tell me which pieces by Chertok are appropriate for a harp competition? Which ones are more lengthy and difficult?

    I’m not really familiar with Chertok, but from what I’ve heard, I’m very interrested in playing a piece.

    Thanks: Monika

    Thanks for the mention of Creighton’s Collection. As well as Natalie’s solo version there are also Quartet versions she plays in with “Quatuor Harpege”

    Welsh harpist Eleri Darkins also has the suite on her CD Hiraeth. My son Benjamin recorded Harpicide at Midnight for a Children’s TV programme “Take a Bow” part of which is on YouTube http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=fQyZPKzoLbw
