    Hello all,

    I’m an amateur harpist (I started lessons last October)

    While we’re at it, any easy music for harp/piano? My friend also plays the piano. :-)

    Bernard Andres’ Algues are musically worth while, have no lever changes within the pieces and aren’t too tricky- they require good basic technique (with a few special effects) rather than advanced technique.

    Becky and Ernie Brock at Arriere-Cour productions have several very nice books of flute and harp music, all arranged for lever harp.

    For a harp/piano duet, Les Pins de Charlannes by Renie is pretty, simple piece.

    Offhand I can’t think of any arrangements of the swan as a duo with lever harp (if you can do the levers in the harp part, you’re usually advanced enough not to need an arrangement). There are a few solo arrangements for lever harp (including mine, but it’s pretty tricky–the others are easier).

    You might enjoy the recently rediscovered Lorenz Sonata for harp and violin:

    The second movement is a theme and variations, so you can select the variations that match your playing level. There are very few lever changes, but the musical content is satisfying to those with a more advanced background in music.

    Have fun!

    Kathryn Cater has a version of Caccini’s Ave Maria available through Melody’s for lever harp and violin.

    Look at arrangements by Ray Poole.
