Availability: In stock

This piece premiered at the 1992 National Conference of the American Harp Society, has been performed (twice!) by a ten pedal harp ensemble at the Soka International Harp Festival in Japan, and by several pedal harp ensembles in Europe. Dr. Ortiz writes “The ostinatos, repetitive patterns and syncopations, are typical of the tonada, a popular harp music genre from the plains of Venezuela. Using the pedals for unique sonorities and one modulation, I tried to preserve the feeling of the traditional while creating new textures and musical landscapes.” Includes score and five harp parts which are 5-6 pages long. Intermediate to upper intermediate level, sightreadable by advanced players. A recorded performance of this piece is available on the CD South American Suite for Harp and Orchestra.
