    "Harp Number Eleven"

    I have written twenty-eight numbered pieces for harp.

    This is number eleven from that series:

    Nice piece in the 18 century style, light menuet very enjoyable even without a wig, but did you know that your piece is unplayable by a real harpist( check the pedal system) : even if it's not intended for live performance I think that it's better to respect the instrument capabilities for greater realism.
    don't you?

    I think Larry specialises in unplayable pieces. I've heard trumpet players who breathe through their ears, horn players who can do what no horn player could ever do. It wouldn't surprise me if he has written a harp piece for a player with four feet

    I would like for everyone to take a look at your smart-alec comments above.

    Every time I send something to this group, you immediately jump in with your insulting, inane remarks. Don't do it again.

    If I ever post again, and I probably won't, do me a large favor. Don't read my message and don't listen to my music. Just don't do anything, especially making any comments.

    Don't bother responding to this message as it will probably further enrage me.

    I really enjoy Larry's pieces and I listen to everything he posts. His music is different and pretty happy sounding. Picks me up when I'm at work which is where I listen to most of the demos posted here.

    Many of the GPO users are hobbyists and probably never plan on having their pieces performed by the real thing. That's where I fit in. Many of us don't have the time to study every capability of the real instruments. Many of us work full time jobs and this is an enjoyable hobby. We lose the enjoyment when folks cut down our pieces and make fun of what we've done.

    This forum gives us hobbyist folks an outlet for our music to be heard by other musicians and hobbyists. Many of us our not inspiring to be the next John Williams. Comments such as Deadbeats will just chase away the hobbyists and the younger musicians from this forum as they been chased away from other forums.

    Larry, keep up the good work. I really appreciate your music!

    Larry,

    Enjoyed your harp piece.

    As a harpist I can say that this would be extremely difficult on a double action harp. However it is entirely possible on a chromatic cross strung harp, or with alternate tunings, or on a MIDI harp.

    I think that Larry's intent was for enjoyment and to have a good time with the music.

    Thanks for sharing your music with us.
