French born harpist and composer, Marcel Grandjany (1891-1975) studied at the Paris Conservatoire before spending much of his working life in America. His Rhapsodie For Harp was composed in 1921 and is a sublime addition to the Harp's repertoire.
Grandjany was a teacher of Harp at the Juilliard School for 37 years whilst also composing and transcribing many works for the instrument. Rhapsodie For Harp is based on a theme of a Gregorian Easter chant, intended to be accompanied by Orchestra. Exploiting the Harp to a virtuosic level, Rhapsodie For Harp by Grandjany makes for a thrilling performance for advanced harpists.
