    You asked about pieces for strings and harp. That is a very popular category for 20th century composers. If you can find an old printed catalog from ASCAP or BMI, you can read through them for pieces with that instrumentation, or ask a music librarian who can access a database that sorts by instrumentation (I think orchestral librarians have this).
    Romanze by Leo Weiner is for solo cello, soloistic harp and strings. It’s challenging and beautiful.
    Notturno by Irving Fine for harp/strings is rather well-known.
    There are hundreds more, but it takes some searching to find them. You can also look in the catalogs of Lou Harrison and Alan Hovhaness for such works.

    I was introduced to these two by the harpist Eleanor Turner. Rise by Ben Rimmer and Haven by Alie Robertson…

    Emma, I know Rise by Rimmer is published but is Haven by Robertson available?

    I’m not sure Gretchen. The composer’s contact page via her website is here. It might be worth dropping her a message to see if is available. The harpist is Eleanor Turner. I might be seeing her tomorrow so if I get the chance I will ask her.
