A collection for the intermediate-advanced pedal harpist of variations on themes from W.A. Mozart's "Magic Flute."
These five pieces for pedal harp and yet another incredible example of composer Jean-Michel Damase's ability to meld technical brilliance with harmonic and lyric complexity. These five pieces for the advanced pedal harpist are each two pages long - each piece has its own special charm. 11 pages.
Jean-Michel Damase is a French pianist, conductor and a classical composer. His skill as a composer was recognized when he won the Grand Prix de Rome in 1947 for his trio for flute, viola and harp. Damase is among the contemporary classical composers who truly know how to write for the harp.
These four pieces for intermediate lever or pedal harp were composed in 2002 by French composer Jean-Michel Damase. Damase is perhaps one of the most prolific non-harpist composers for the instrument. His compositions are not only idiomatic but also elegant, with ample opportunity for the harp to shine as a solo instrument. Written without key signatures, but with interesting combinations of sharps and flats, these pieces are in many ways similar to the compositions of French harpist and composer Bernard Andres.
This concert etude, by Jean-Michel Damase, bears many similarities to Hasselmans La Source. This piece consists of 16th and 32nd note arpeggios running upwards and downwards in a flowing style with a melody in octaves. This work would be an excellent recital selection to showcase a performer's technical skill and musicality.
