Detailed Description

Harp - Advanced - Digital Download
Composed by Christopher Schwinger. 21st Century. Solo Part. 18 pages. Published by Christopher Schwinger (S0.66889).

Item Number: S0.66889

An advanced piece for pedal harp, about 12 minutes long, with lots of melodies and a variety of styles and tempos. It's in western classical harmony and structured as a melodic journey. There are sections with delicate "handiwork"/hand-work and a little bit of glissandi and pres de la table effects. Three sections in the middle are more extensive, one involving exuberant melodies, another having a waltz-like character, and the central one partly inspired by Weber's "Andante and Hungarian Rondo" (which I performed on the viola). My goal was to make the piece feel like one great cohesive experience instead of just a lot of little sections, and hopefully you will agree. My other goal was to provide melodies which will delight music-lovers, and package them together in a meaningful way. The PDF also includes "composer's notes" of musical analysis and the process I went through in writing the piece.
