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 Étude De Concert Au Matin is no exception.
Composed in 1940, Étude De Concert Au Matin 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 Étude De Concert Au Matin is suitable to all advanced harpists seeking to explore varied repertoire on the instrument.
