Notes

PETITE SUITE
To Hansjörg Rösli

THIS WORK WAS AWARDED FIRST PRIZE IN THE INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION FOR HARP COMPOSITION 1961 IN THE UNITED STATES.
Given by the Northern Californian Harpists Association

 

PRELUDE
Early morning on the Seine. The Sun shines and the surface of the water is only disturbed by swallows, dragonflies and a little boat. Cows graze in the meadows which lead down to the water.  One hears only the joyous cries of swallows and the song of birds from the wood on the southern bank.

NOCTURNE
The countryside at Ande lies under the low and heavy clouds of a summer night — only the noise of crickets disturbs the restless stillness. Suddenly, stars shining through a break in the clouds discover the Seine — moving silently and serenely through the night.

FIRE DANCE
A piece which evokes the exciting ritual dances of South America. The style of this dance was inspired by the sound of the little Paraguayan harp where the effects are usually simple but rhythmic impulse very strong.

 

These pieces can be performed separately.
