I originally orchestrated my fiery showpiece “Baroque Flamenco” for my debut performance with the Boston Pops, subsequently played it with orchestras all over the US, and NOW I get the pleasure of CONDUCTING the work with a woman I consider one of the greatest harp soloists alive today.
We interrupt this post for an important message:

Conducting my own piece with Eleanor as soloist was a pinnacle moment in my experience of the piece. The musicality, flair, passion and humor she brings to the piece brings it completely alive and it’s a thrill to watch that from my vantage point with baton in hand.
HARPISTS: Do YOU play Baroque Flamenco?
... then I'd love to hear your story and see a video of how you play it. Use this form to share your story and a video from YouTube and I'll feature it in a blogpost like the ones you can link to below.
Do you WANT to play Baroque Flamenco?
The solo harp sheet music includes 3 levels: advanced beginner, intermediate & professional. Other versions include harp ensemble, piano/harp duo (piano reduction), concerto and upcoming chamber ensemble versions.
My online class "Baroque Flamenco Beyond the Page" takes you through the piece step by step at all 3 levels, with videos of all the sections and special effects, breakdowns (to show you how the piece is put together) and a set of warmups to help you develop the rhythms.
