SM0314: Sonata for the harp

Sonata for the Harp
Carl Friedrich Abel (1723 - 1787)
Edited Mike Parker

Cover Image This sonata is a perfect example of harp writing of the period. Intended for the ‘French’ single-action instrument with its light and crisp tones, the resonance's of the instrument are well used and the beautifully crafted phrases fall easily under the fingers. With care and subtlety, however, the work will transfer to the modern pedal harp or the period chromatic harp and well deserves to be heard once more in both salon and concert hall. This publication also benefits from a comprehensive Forward, including notes on ornamantation by Mike Parker
