Faure, G.; arr. Bernard Andres, Berceuse from Dolly Suite, Op. 56 (Two Harps)

Gabriel Faure initially composed Dolly Suite for the daughter of his mistress in 1894– The suite was written for piano four-hands (the only work for two pianos composed by Faure) and is therefore an excellent source of material for harp duet.
