Prelude a l'apres-midi d'un Faune [Flute and Harp]
- Highly recommended
From the Publisher
A must for all flute/harp duos, this arrangement by harpist Judy Loman (Toronto Symphony) takes the flute part from Debussy’s original version of Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, with the flute carrying more of the melodic material than in the orchestral version. Described by Jeanne Baxtresser (New York Philharmonic, former principal) as an “absolutely gorgeous arrangement that brings the flavor of the orchestral version into the chamber setting,” Ms. Baxtresser has recorded this piece on Cala Artists’ Legends of New York (CAD0512) with harpist Sarah Bullen (Chicago Symphony).
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
