The 6 pieces in this volume come from a cycle (including “En forêt” and “Kaléidoscope”) written for young harpists, particularly pupils at around grade II to III level (equivalent to three to four years of study); the two other albums are suitable for grades I to VI.
Obviously these levels are somewhat arbitrary, and two students working on the same grade will not necessarily be of the same ability.
From a technical point of view, these pieces are placed in progressive order. The composer has also made use of highly melodic phrases in order to encourage the pupil’s musicality while improving technique. It is technique after all that will enable the pupil to realise his or her musicianship.
For those playing a Celtic
harp, the accidentals to be obtained by moving the levers with the
left hand are given in brackets in the bass clef staff (although sometimes
treble clef is used for the higher notes). The left hand is given sufficient
pause in playing to move each lever without disturbing the flow of
