Harp excerpt from orchestral work
« on: January 01, 2022, 05:03:33 PM »
This is the harp part from an orchestral work that I composed 10 years ago.  I've been going through the material because it was an important part of my life and hit a 10 year milestone.  I enjoyed hearing some of what I put the harpist through.  The work is for large orchestra and lasts 15 minutes but here is an extract from the work for the harp.  I was lucky to have access to such a wonderful harpist for the premiere.  I do think it sounds completely different in its orchestral incarnation but like the harp excerpts as well.  It is hard to believe it was 10 years ago.  It feels like yesterday.  :)
