Short romantic solos for the advanced beginner
Adapted & edited for harp by Dominique Piana

Tendresses ... French for tender greetings or tokens of affection, is a collection of 20 short works written by great 19th century composers or pedagogues. It is designed for the harpist who has completed at least one full year of study and is ready to "play" with the pedals. Each miniature work, whether song or dance, evokes a mood based on universally recognized sentiments. Early access to the rich legacy of this "romantic" vocabulary, ranging from dreaminess to resolve and sorrow to cheer, encourages personal involvement in the musical process. Once the notes begin to speak, to the ear, to the heart, the stage is set for joyful experimentation and lovely expression...
Includes: Study recording on CD performed by Celia Chan Valerio
