Composer: Harp Pieces



Carillon Score

Harp Quartet for four Lever Harps

I was excited by the idea and possibilities of using four lever harps.  This was  proposed by a Harpist and Teacher that I met at the Dundee Symphony Orchestra.  I thought that I could write music with an architectural/three dimensional aural quality and I set about the pieces with this in mind.  I also wanted to explore the idea of having the Harps tuned in different keys so that I could juxtapose chords and patterns in different ways.
