I am playing this piece in three weeks. Does anybody have some helpful fingerings/changes for Variant 3? Any help would be appreciated!!
Yes indeed – so I’ve sent you Barbara Fackler’s version of the entire harp part which she gave me when I was desperate in 2009 and we finalised it into a really good result including corrections to the 2003 part from the score. It is an extraordinary composition and such a wonderful discovery – but VW wrote the harp part in ‘voices’ and I found it too difficult to read into two handfuls. I am listening to it again – wow. We had a thread before…… http://www.harpcolumn.com/forums/professional-harpists/posts/56329
The [?] up right is a pdf of an excerpt from a book on VW with the background to the work, from bottom of 2nd real page.
then email me or one of the others ! I heard this piece again on the radio today – it surely is one of my favorites, curiously it was at a much lower tempo so less stress for the harpist, but musically almost too slow – I guess one gets used to works in a certain tempo range.
Hi Ka, I was alerted to this last night, as it came to my personal email. Without knowing yours, all I can do is reply to harp column and attach the files, which I did, and hopefully the office will send them onto you, as I can’t see your own email on this site. I don’t think we should attach files to the site as access is unrestricted. Alison
