    Hello! My sister, a cellist, received a dvd for Christmas that featured a great cellist (I don’t remember his name) playing some well-known cello music. I was wondering if there’s anything like that out there for harp. I’d love to see Susan McDonald or some other great harpist play some important pieces in the pedal harp repertoire.

    Laura- There’s a wonderful 10 minute film that was made in the early 1940’s of Mildred Dilling playing 3 pieces. It was transfered onto DVD and the owner of the film gave me a copy. I’m hoping that it becomes commercially available at some point because it shows Mildred at the peak of her playing abilities. There are very few people around today who remember her at that time in her life. She was a marvelous harpist with a great technique.

    I know this thread is 8 months old, but I wanted to bump it, as I have the same question.

    It costs a lot to produce them. There is a ten-minute video from television of Miss Lawrence that I wish someone would put on YouTube already. I don’t have a video drive in my computer.

    Production costs would make it hard.

    There are DVDs of Miss McDonald playing some important harp repertoire and the Debussy Danses. It is amazing to watch her play flawlessly at her current age and she is very inspirational. You will definitely enjoy them. Also, the BYU harp archives sell DVDs of BYU students playing ensemble and solo harp music.
