Harp Scoring book by Stanley Chaloupka
Stanley Chaloupka was the principal harpist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic for 40 years. He wrote this book for composers and arrangers to assist them in achieving their desired harp scoring objectives and also encourage a profusion of creative, logical harp scoring. The enigma of harp pedals and their function is explained in detail. Glissandos are also extensively discussed, as well as chords, arpeggios, scales, harmonics, and various special effects. "Rules of thumb" as well as certain basic standards are set, and some "do nots" are specifically listed. 55 pages, paperbound.
