harp part to...

    Just wondering if there is a harp part to the Elgar Symphony No. 1 or

    the Saint-Saens Cello Concerto. We are performing these two works in

    our youth symphony and I was wondering if I'll have anything to do!

      Elgar 1 you will have plenty to do- it has first and second harp parts which are different and good parts to play.  If your orchestra thinks it is getting away with only one harpist please try to disabuse it of this notion, you will get much more out of it with both parts.
