Marcel Grandjany: 3 Petites Pièces Très Faciles Op.7 (Harp Solo)

Books | Harp

Publisher: Alphonse Leduc
Composer: Marcel Grandjany
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

French born harpist and composer, Marcel Grandjany (1891-1975) studied at the Paris Conservatoire before spending much of his working life in America. His Trois petites Pièces were composed in Grandjany's early career and are simple and enjoyable works, suitable for beginner harpists.

Grandjany was a teacher of Harp at the Julliard School for 37 years whilst also composing and transcribing many works for the instrument. Made up of three movements, Trois petites Pièces begins with a delicate Rêverie (daydream). The second piece, a Nocturne, contains variations in tempo, time signature and dynamics. The Barcarolle third movement is the most challenging of the three pieces, accommodating the key of G? major, 6/8 time signature and semiquaver flourishes. All these combined aspects of Trois petites Pièces by Grandjany make for a thrilling performance for beginner harpists.

        Nelson GB Retired French teacher
        2 sweet and easy pieces suitable for lever harp
        3rd piece had 6 flats and needed pedal harp- it hadn't mentioned that!
        I therefore returned the collection.
