My harpist friend and I adapted a Jill Justice arrangement for Lever and Pedal Harp Duet of As The Deer (1984 Maranatha Praise, Inc). We also played a Daniel Burton arrangement of Amazing Grace for harp and piano (2001 Jubal Press)
When I heard the Debussy Danses performed by Grete Wangensteen and William Wangensteen, it was then that I understoond how beautiful and compatible the harp and piano could be. That was because he played the piano with such sensitivity-as though he was playing Debussy-that it enhanced the harp rather than obliterate it. If only all pianists could so modulate their touch. Perhaps it takes a fine pianist to adapt his tone to whatever instrument he is accompanying, or a fine father.
Hello, Does anyone know where I can find the sheet music score for J.L. Dussek’s Op. 38, “Duo for harp, piano & horn ad
libitum”? I have found recordings of it, I found the harp part online (for free), but I cannot find the piano or horn parts. Would LOVE to be able to get hold of all the parts for this piece.
I think the harp and piano duos by Henri Zagwijn will be right up your alley. Alice Giles and her husband recorded one of them, “the Seasons”. There is another one called “Mystere”. Reynaldo Hahn’s “Prelude, Waltz and Rigaudon” is very chromatic, but fun.
