For lever or pedal harp.
Darhon Rees-Rohrbacher has arranged 6 short pieces from the operas of Jean-Baptiste Lully (1632-1687) for lever harps with at least 4 octaves (C to C) or pedal harp. This unique selections is for intermediate players. The pieces are in keys of C or G. Three of the pieces have no lever changes, and three have quite a few. Suggested fingerings, dynamics and tempos are provided throughout. 10 pages of music.
Here's what Darhon has to say about these arrangements:
Selections included in this collection were taken from the stage works of Jean-Baptiste Lully (1632-1687) and adapted from his keyboard manuscripts. Lully's music was highly stylized with many trills and mordents, seemingly "fussy" to the modern ear. I retained the original melodies, most harmonies and much of the voicing. However, in order to adapt them to the harp and make them less cumbersome to play, I eliminated a number of the mordents and trills and retained just enough to maintain the characteristic French "flavor" of the pieces.
