For PEDAL harp only.

Mildred Dilling's arrangement of Johann Strauss' The Blue Danube is a true encore piece! This very impressive pedal harp solo is filled with arpeggios, glissandos, and harpistic flourishes. The keys modulate from 4 flats to 7 flats. 8 pages of music for intermediate to advanced PEDAL harp.

This arrangement is printed with the permission of the estate of Mildred Dilling, exactly as in the handwritten copy that she gave to Louise Trotter as a student in New York City many years ago. Miss Dilling concertized throughout her lifetime, and played this piece at most of her concerts. She helped organize the American Harp Society, and was one of the most well-known harpists of the 20th century. She was a long time student of Henriette Renie in Paris, and made her debut at the Salle Erard there. She performed all over the world, incorporating into the program a demonstration of some of her rare harps which included Irish, Ethiopian, and 12th Century harps. Her most famous pupil was Harpo Marx, who would sometimes show up at her concerts to play an encore. Louise Trotter has enjoyed playing The Blue Danube on countless occasions, and it is on her CD entitled Louise.
