    Hi, I’m 17, I live in Brazil and have been playing the harp for
    about five years. I’m planning to do an audition in the end of the
    semester but I don’t know what exactly to play. I’ve already played
    Passacaglia by Haendel, Salzedo’s Chansons Dans La Nuit

    Hi Ana Paula!

    I played some of the pieces you name here too! You could try Saint-Sa?ns’s Fantaisie pour Harpe, one of the pieces I enjoyed very much! It’s quite a long piece (8/9 minutes) and it’s quite a challenge. I also love ‘La Source’ by Alphons Hasselmans and ‘Scherzetto’ by Ibert. That last one isn’t too hard and great fun to play (it has a very ‘happy’ melody). I hope to have given you some suggestions!

    Best wishes from the Netherlands,

    Elise

    Hey Anna Paula!

    I’m always suggesting the 1st and 2nd movement of Handel’s Concerto in Bb to any looking to a fun peice to play. The 1st movement is a considerably shorter than the 2nd if played at the suggested tempo. The 2nd movement is also much easier to me. I play the Salzedo version which is supposedly more difficult than other arrangements. Go figure, right? 🙂

    Best of luck, Steven
