Composed for Pedal Harp, Vers La Source Dans Le Bois is a piece for advanced players composed by Marcel Tournier.
Including some pedal changes, the piece starts played by the right hand interpreting the water coming from the fountain, with really fast notes giving a feeling of an enchanted world. The left hand completes this part with natural harmonies and the piece then follows with glissandi before coming back to the initial theme.
This melodious piece is really gracious and will be nice to play and to listen to.
Marcel Tournier (1879-1951) was a French harpist, composer and professor, who wrote many pieces that are now part of the repertoire and that extended the technical capacities of this instrument.
