Jacqueline Pollauf, harpist, presents a mini-concert of the transcriptions of Marcel Grandjany
November 20 at 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Join harpist Jacqueline Pollauf for a mini-concert of the transcriptions of Marcel Grandjany.
Marcel Grandjany (1891–1975) composed for the harp, but also transcribed many works for the instrument, both famous works and pieces by little-known composers, to help expand the repertoire. The program will feature:
- Siciliana by Ottorino Respighi
- Pavane et bransles by Antoine Francisque
- Movements II and III from Concerto in B-flat Major by George Friedrich Handel
- El Viejo Castillo Moro by Eduardo Chavarri
- Sacro Montë by Joaqín Turina
Jacqueline Pollauf is known for her sensitive performances, dedication to teaching, and beautifully-crafted compositions. She has appeared at Carnegie Hall, the Eleventh World Harp Congress and the National Gallery of Art. Her most recent recording, Beau Soir, with cellist Dariusz Skoraczewski, was lauded as “utter perfection” (The Harp Column). Glissando Exercises, Pollauf’s most recent publication, is third in a series of exercise books for the harp. Her compositional works are available through Lyon and Healy Publications, Vanderbilt Music, Harp Column Music, and Oakway Studios.
Pollauf is the director of the Baltimore Harp Camp, and is on the faculties of the Baltimore School for the Arts and UMBC. Performances and instructional videos can be found on her highly regarded YouTube channel. He holds Master and Bachelor of Music degrees from the Peabody Conservatory.
