For intermediate players, Guitare, Op.50 is a melodious piece by Alphonse Hasselmans. Composed ideally for pedal Harps, this piece includes some pedal changes and some accidental alterations.
Three sections can be differentiated: Allegro Moderato (3/8), Pas trop retenu (3/4) and Tempo 1 (3/8). The last part is a variation of the theme played in the Allegro Moderato section.
Perfect for a recital, this piece for Harp is really enjoyable to play and to listen to.
