The Treatment of the Harp in Orchestral Literature from the Eighteenth Century to the Present

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

When one realizes how little the harp of the 1700's had advanced from its Biblical predecessors, its neglect by such masters as Bach, Haydn, and Beethoven does not seem remarkable. Why should a serious composer waste his time in writing for an instrument with no facilities for modulating, an instrument the weak tones of which would be lost in an orchestra?
