I run Harp Repertoire Discovery Group in facebook, where I discuss unusual, outstanding, neglected harp repertoire. I recently posted about the Four Vignettes by Bernard Wagenaar, which are “modern” pieces of color, vigor and delight. They are not long, but as a group, could be six or eight minutes long in performance. They are of extremely high quality, are very inexpensive to buy. They employ a number of Salzedo’s tone colors. Each one has a very distinct mood. Great recital pieces for an intermediate or advanced, professional harpist. Very refreshing. They are a bit reminiscent of the music of Paul Hindemith. They have humor, moderate dissonance, color and variety. Rarely played, as far as I know, I strongly recommend them.
