Editorial Reviews

An excellent work useful to music libraries but highly recommended as well for harp enthusiasts.
An excellent work useful to music libraries but highly recommended as well for harp enthusiasts.
This reference contains about 5,000 entries on works for harp (in combination with as many as eight other instruments), songs and other vocal and choral works with harp accompaniment, and harp concerti and other concerted works in which that instrument plays a solo role. It contains citations of music published between 1800 and 2000, subdivided by original works and arrangements. Within each classification, citations are arranged alphabetically by composer, or by arranger or compiler for anthologies or anonymous works. Each entry provides the information required to accurately identify a work such as uniform titles (when needed), publisher, pagination (when available), and complete contents listings for anthologies. Includes an index of names and titles, and of music playable on non-pedal harps. Palkovic is head librarian at the College-Conservatory of Music Library, U. of Cincinnati. Annotation c.
