    Hello harp people,
    Does anyone know of some classical repertoire for the low intermediate harpist. (I play pedal harp)
    Not solo pieces, but chamber music with a harp part. I like to be challenged but something that I can still manage to learn in a few months.
    I have friends who play a lot of different instruments, so it can pretty have any instrument. I’m just so tired of playing solo!
    Oh yeah, and any era,
    Thanks for the help 🙂

    The Bizet Entr’Acte from Carmen is frequently done, and the Berlioz Trio of the Young Ishmaelites, though it is not too easy.

    The Andres Algues are nice to play and fit well under the fingers.

    And the Berlioz trio is one where the flutists really love to run ahead. They play sustained notes and don’t care what the harpist is doing, which in my case was mostly

    The Swan by Saint-Saens can be played with just harp and cello. It has been transcribed for violin or flute, as well. Also, there is a lovely piece by Villa Lobos called the Song of the Black Swan, which was his response to The Swan by Saint-Saens.
