I have the Durand (France) publication of Tzigane, for violin and piano. On the first page is printed: violon et piano (ou Lutheal). There is the word luth in my 1946-page Oxford-Hachette French-English dictionary, published in 1994, translated as “Lute” but Lutheal is not there. It would seem that the piano part may be played by harp with some adaptation of the fingering and voicing, using this edition. The piano part is 17 pages long.
I heard that on the radio recently and the piano reduction replaced the orchestra, including harp excerpts, so I can’t see how a harpist could play all that, too thick a texture and far too much to play, I’d say…
