Marilyn Rummel’s transcription of Erik Satie’s Gymnopodie No. 1 is for solo lever harp. On adapting this piece for lever harp, Rummel states this “transcription includes occasional changes to which hand plays the notes to facilitate lever changes. The changes are well planned and though they need practice, none are particularly difficult, and they are organized to maintain the calm feeling of the piece, and make it easy to remember them if your piece is memorized.” This famous classical piece is a great addition to any harpist’s repertoire.
