To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a nicely balanced collection of pieces for intermediate-advanced harp. Many pieces are not playable with lever harps (switches are too quick, some notes are too high / low for anything but a 47 string pedal harp), but I suspect that's normal with a book like this. I'd agree with the other reviews that say the title is misleading, as these will certainly not be the "first" 50 songs you learn, but it is a good selection to add to my repertoire.
Soweit ich sie ausprobiert habe, sind die Harfensätze schön klingend, die Fingersätze spielbar, und die Songs ergänzen ein traditionelles Repertoire sehr schön. Als gebundenes Buch sicher empfehlenswert. Ich habe es allerdings als E-Book gekauft, und hier wurden einige Seiten so knapp geschnitten, dass manchmal nicht alles drauf ist. Dann braucht es Fantasie ...
Received this today and enjoyed reading through several pieces. I play at an intermediate level and found the arrangements accessible and the I liked the selections that were included. I really wish this was coil bound or available in PDF.
I think these arrangements are lovely, and the styles of music are diverse. However they are definitely NOT the first 50 songs you should play on a harp. I agree with the prior review that this book is poorly titled. These are at least intermediate level. I've been a harp hobbyist, playing multiple times a week for several years and I find most of these songs a little challenging, albeit in a good way. But I would have been highly discouraged if I had bought this book as a complete beginner, and I didn't buy it for several months despite it being in my recommendations because I thought they would be beginner arrangements. They also do work better on a pedal harp than lever harp as most would require a number of lever changes.
