Hasselmans Gondoliera op. 39

    I've recently purchased this music, and would love to find a recording of it. I'm not having any luck, though. Is anyone aware of a recording, or have tips on learning this piece? I can't even find it on youtube. Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks, Andy

      Just bumping this back up; still not having any luck finding a recording or anyone familiar with this piece. I haven't started seriously working on it yet, due to some other projects, but hope to get around to it soon.

      I love some of Hasselmans' work, particularly "Guitare" and "Feuilles d'Automne".  Have you had time to sightread "Gondoliera" at all?  Does it sound similar to the works that I just mentioned?  (They have a somewhat dark/sad quality to them.)

      "Petite Berceuse" was the first REAL GROWN UP piece I worked on, and I still find it amazing that so much beautiful sound could be put into a little piece that is so simple.

      My teacher always points out that Hasselman's music is totally harpistic.
