I arranged part of my "Etude Number Seven" for two GPO chromatic harps.
Regards to everyone,
That's very sweet, Larry. That intro would be quite the challenge for the two harpists to coordinate, I think. I liked the stereo spread of the two harps.
Thanks for sharing this. Your output is quite prodigious, and may it continue to be! I would love to see scores of some of your stuff, sometime. I like the way you use secondary keys, and would love to see what that looks like in print.
Thanks for your good words, Mr. Rob. They are appreciated.
I think I might put these two harps a little closer to
center, Larry. I understand the intent; but mixing
electronically is a little different from reality, alas.
In a "real" room, there'd be some natural cross-blend
of the two... but in our electron cosmos, that
doesn't occur; so one needs to compensate.
As for the piece, unusually delicate for you, and
sure proof you've got not only a sweet tooth, but,
I'd bet, you secretly even like children.
Seriously... nice work on this, my friend, enjoyed.
My word! Where did you find this one, Mr. David? I though that it was gone into cybernether forever.
Thanks muchly for your good review and suggestions. Appreciated.
I'm glad etLux brought this back to page 1... somehow it escaped me!
This is definitely one of my favorites of yours, Larry -- even MORE different than your occasional atypical pieces. I thought you captured the idiomatic nature of the harp just wonderfully with the wistful, lilting, almost music box feel throughout; and to even think of a harp duo was very clever and creative in and of itself. The stereo separation didn't bother me at all, maybe because my monitors are only four to five feet apart. So, on my system, that separation made for my own little "staged" concert while I listened at my desk. This was a delight!
Many thanks, Mr. Danny.
I have never actually seen a performance of a harp duo but I suppose that it has been done before.
I appreciate your good review.
A very well-written Harp Duo. I like the
performance as well, but I have to agree
with David on the separation. Maybe one
of the Harpists will pick one end of that
gorgeous instrument up and wheel it a little
closer to his duo partner............lol

So Marvelous Larry! I agree with etlux. It should have more stereo bleeding. Other than that, absolutely fun piece. I'd love to be the harpists playing this, if I played harp.
May the Fourth Be With You
Nice job on this Mr. Larry. I especially liked the first half - then towards the end. Interplay of the two harps. Like to hear more of this from you!
