If you like the music of Frank Voltz, you will absolutely love this collection from William Mahan. Some of his most beautiful melodies ever. Truly inspired, these compositions can be used for any type of situation: for yourself, for healing music, for background music, for recitals. The music is not difficult, but the left hand does require some crossing over and under. True to the Italian flavor, some of the melodies incorporate triplet and mordent ornamentation. You’ll need a full size lever harp or pedal harp to play these tunes. There are a few lever changes, but with just a little practice they will go smoothly. Gentle and flowing, you’ll find a lyric right hand melody supported by lush chords. Some fingerings are included. The music has been edited by Mary Radspinner. All music either in C or G. The final tune, All the Colors of Rome, a 5-minute plus performance piece, is gorgeous. You may also order the book/CD combination. Mary plays through all the titles using a Dusty Strings Bubinga 36S. You Tube below features “Tuscan Gold”
