Grandjany was a teacher of Harp at the Julliard School for 37 years whilst also composing and transcribing many works for the instrument. Made up of three movements, Trois petites Pi èces begins with a delicate Rêverie (daydream). The second piece, a Nocturne, contains variations in tempo, time signature and dynamics. The Barcarolle third movement is the most challenging of the three pieces. All these combined aspects of Trois petites Pi èces make for a thrilling performance for beginner harpists.
