For players wishing to increase their proficiency in ensemble performing, a series of short skill-building etudes to be sight-read by harp ensembles. Most parts are for only one hand, for the ease (and relief) of the player in attaining completion and satisfaction quickly. This is a unique collection, as the pieces are not necessarily easy. They are for harpists who have played at least a year. Not all parts are the same level of difficulty. The composition “Fantasy” is very unusual as it provides eight bars which are blank – an opportunity to improvise! LOWER INTERMEDIATE TO INTERMEDIATE, ALL HARPS.
The titles are: Early Memory [skills: rhythm and listening, key of F], Recurring Dream [skill: finger damping, key of C], Moonlight Remembered [skill: arpeggios, key of D], Fantasy [skills: etouffe, harmonics, PDLT and improvisation, key of Eb], Lightness [skills: rhythm and dynamics, key of C].
