This episode of Together SpARTanburg is all about harp! Principal Harpist Emily Waggoner and I discuss the harp's history, its place in the orchestra, and perform from our homes. Music featured includes a duet version of Jupiter from Gustav Holst's The Planets based on arrangement for two harps by Janet Witman, as well as the harp variation from The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra by Benjamin Britten, and the Waltz of the Flowers cadenza from Pyotr Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker.
Thank you to the Spartanburg Philharmonic for including harps in this wonderful online series!
With the help of several experts, I take an in-depth look at tuning as well as review tuning apps. We get into, "the nitty-gritty about the chore harpists love to hate." in this special stay at home May/June 2020 issue of the Harp Column. FREE for all harpists to download or read online here!
