    Etude 07 - Harp Duo


    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 best,

    Hi Larry,

    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.

    My best,

    Larry G. Alexander

    Mr. Larry:

    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

    BRAVO, Larry

    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.

    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!
