Harp 1 of Norwegian Dance is best played on a pedal harp. Harp 2 can be played on a lever harp with some lever changes. This exciting dance melody in 4/4 time moves by seconds and thirds. In the middle of the piece the dance starts to get faster and louder, ending in a surprise muffle at measure 50, which is very dramatic. The piece then returns to the beginning melody. Performance time for Norwegian Dance is about three minutes.
The arrangement comes with separate copies for First Harp and Second Harp and an Ensemble Copy showing the two parts together.
