    GPO Harp Demo - by Jack de Mello

    Jack de Mello, a well-known and extraordinarily gifted composer, has written a harp piece for the two GPO Harps called "Dueling Harps".

    This is the first piece he wrote soon after receiving GPO:

    Jack de Mello has had an amazing and fascinating career. Jack recorded close to 160 albums of all types of music in some of the best studios around the world (including Decca Studios in London, Barclay Studios in Paris, RCA in Rome, major studios in Hollywood, New York, and Chicago). He recorded, arranged and popularized Hawaiian music and his arrangements have been performed by the London Philharmonic, the Tokyo Symphony, the Victor Concert Orchestra and the NHK Orchestra among others.

    Jack also composed and orchestrated music for Hanna Barbera for the Flintstones, the Jetsons, Magilla Gorilla, Top Kat and Ricochet Rabbit. He served as musical director of NBC in San Francisco and has composed nearly 500 commercials and jingles over the years

    It is an honor to have Jack as a part of the GPO Community!

    What a delight! Absolutely magical. Many thanks for posting this - and it's great to know that we are in the company of such illustrious colleagues!
    Would love to hear more of Jack's GPO pieces- please!
    I'd also love to know Jack's method of working too. Does he use a notation program or a Sequencer/keyboard?
    Best regards,
    John

    Great composition!

    Is it really playable, though - even with two harps? There are enough modulations that the feet would be as active as the fingers!

    I'd pay good money to see this played live!

    Jack, you have been emailing me this cool stuff for a long time, and I never knew of your experiences that Gary has told us about.

    I was honored when you made your own upbeat version of Danny Boy after hearing my version on Gary's website.
    I had no idea.
    I am truly honored and so proud to have been able to help you with a few little questions.
    Fun piece!

    Come to think of it. I'd pay even more if somebody would teach me how to play it live! It's an impressive piece of music.
