In this arrangement, Harp 1 is best played on a pedal harp. Harp 2 can be played on a lever harp as there are no lever or pedal changes in that part. In Mandolin Duet, dynamic differences are fun to play. We have two measures of “forte” with a muffle on the fourth beat, followed by two measures of “piano” with a muffle on the fourth beat. The pattern of loud and soft is repeated several times throughout the arrangement. Performance time for Mandolin Duet is about three and a half minutes.
The arrangement comes with separate copies for First Harp and Second Harp and an Ensemble Copy showing the two parts together.
