Music for Harp

Post by kh0815 » Sun Dec 20, 2009 5:45 am

In viewtopic.php?f=11&t=119&start=20#p3418 ilu is looking for Boieldieu's Harp Concerto - not to be found yet.

For some interesting harp music see http://notes.tarakanov.net/harp.htm. Any other sources?

There's a Russian site dedicated to Harp Music, but I can't for the life of me find it! Can anyone find the link?

Here's another chamber piece by Golubev, one of three quintets he composed during his career (the other two are piano quintets):

Evgeny GOLUBEV
Quintet, for harp and strings, op. 39 (1953)
Golubev - Quintet, for harp and strings, op. 39 (1953).pdf

Do you have parts for this?

Unfortunately I do not. If you have access to interlibrary loan, the piece is held by a small handful of libraries. I would check to make sure the library's copy had the parts before doing anything:

There's a better scan of the score and a lossless recording available through the files.mail.ru link on the following page:

Here's an interesting volume gathering together all of Golubev's other harp works:

Yevgeny Kirillovich GOLUBEV
The Harp Solo and in Ensembles, works (3) with harp (1990 pub.)

including:

The Harp (words by S. Gorodetsky), for voice and harp, op. 91, no. 1 (1988)

Nocturne, for solo harp, op. 91, no. 2 (1988)

Quartet, for two flutes and two harps, op. 49 (1963)
Golubev - Works (3), for harp solo and in ensembles (1990 pub.).pdf

As this is mainly a forum for pianists, it would interesting
to see any suggestions for works composed for harp solo,
which can also readily be played on the piano. (When I say
readily, I mean give-or-take the odd glissando or two.) It seems
to be a good way of adding extra 'piano' pieces to the repertoire,
seeing as how the clefs are the same.
To get the ball rolling, I suggest Roussel's Impromptu Op.21
and Spohr's Fantasia Op.35.

The attached piece does not really fit in this category but it is a piano work imitating a harp:

S. Aronson (?)
I love my harp - Meditation for Piano
Published by Thiebes Piano, St. Louis, 1913.
