Pedal or Lever Harp

Gone South by Laura Zaerr PDF Download

Item #p7545

For lever or pedal harp.

Here's how Laura Zaerr describes her composition.
"Gone South" is all about contrasts. The jaunty complex rhythm which forms the main theme is derived from the interplay between two against three. Melodies and bass lines are in contrary motion. At some point, the whole piece takes a lyrical turn for parts unknown. The ensuing austere hymn-like middle section uses the playful opening rhythm as a background. This hymn is repeated three times with increasing intensity until the structure reaches a final crescendo, only to fall into a pianissimo return of the opening material. This piece is playable on lever or pedal harp. Advanced, with some tricky lever / pedal changes, requiring an agile left hand and some speedy crossing hands arpeggios.
