Canon for Harp

Recommended Posts

Still getting familiar with harp writing (and pedals).

A classic canon

Part A in G minor at the seventh (or second  + octave)

Part B: D min at the fourth down motu contrario

Part A': the same A but inverted counterpoint.

Nice, though some of the left hand inversions in the main canon I thought sounded a little bit weaker in terms of voice leading.
I think there might be some issues with pedals in the modulatory parts, since when the one closest to the player is pressed, the other one has to be released for some notes to remain. I'm not entirely sure though...

That's one of the most important issues for the beginner (me). But OMG, after seeing scores by Ravel for example, for harp, this is "nothing".

I've been going over the score. The effect you mention could happen here. E natural and F natural cannont be put at the same time, but there is a whole measure to do it. When F natural has to be activated, the F# in the bass voice is finished. Well, perhaps it can resonate a bit, but lowering the sound from F# to F while the first is still sounding is not bad in this situacion (I think).

There are other solutions, for example make the G shorter and writ ea damp mark.
