Carlos Salzedo (1885-1961) was a revolutionary pianist, harpist and composer. Born in France, Salzedo studied at the Paris Conservatory with Alphonse Hasselmans. In 1909, Salzedo moved to New York where he worked as a musician in orchestral, solo, and chamber settings. Salzedo founded the harp department at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia in 1924, where he taught for many years. His distinctive playing technique is widely taught and used today. He composed and arranged many pieces for all levels of harp players.
