French harpist, composer and teacher, Marcel Tournier (1879-1951) wrote important solo repertoire for the Harp which expanded the harmonic and technical possibilities of the instrument. His Morning Concert Study is no exception.
Composed in 1940, Morning Concert Study remains regularly performed and recorded by harpists. The piece is marked allegro and is in compound meter. Tonality and rhythm are sublimely exploited and there is much use of extended technique. Tournier's Morning Concert Study is suitable to all advanced harpists seeking to explore varied repertoire on the instrument.
