Fourteen lever harp arrangements that include excerpts of some of the most famous French works by Debussy and Ravel, including Clair de lune, The Girl with the Flaxen Hair, and Pavane. The book features classical excerpts but there are five folk tunes and a medieval melody. The level of difficulty ranges from advanced beginner to advanced intermediate.
This collection of some of the most beautiful French melodies is a perfect addition to almost every harpist’s repertoire. The arrangements all have fingering and dynamics. The keys range from two sharps to one flat, but a full set of levers is needed for several of the more advanced classical excerpts. Eight of the pieces require no lever changes and five of the classical melodies require multiple lever changes. LOWER TO ADVANCED INTERMEDIATE, ALL HARPS.
