The String Sings
Joyce Rice’s The String Sings is a reflective solo for pedal harp or lever harp. It was premiered at the 1998 Folk Harp Conference as part of a poetry and music presentation. This is not meant to be a virtuosi piece, but contemplative and thought provoking. Fingerings and dynamics are marked. Lush harmonies include a fair amount of extended chords with 7ths and 9ths. The piece itself goes back and forth between major and minor, resolving on a lovely G9 chord. Included is the poem which inspired the piece, “Musician” by Louise Bogan.
