This new collection of six graded keyboard pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach has been transcribed for the harp and offers students, teachers, and professionals an opportunity to expand their repertoire as well as learn valuable technical and musical skills. 


Using music that J.S. Bach composed as pedagogical pieces for his eldest son, Wilhelm Friedemann, and his second wife, Anna Magdalena, gives harpists of all levels an in-depth look into his music and late German Baroque style. It also offers a glimpse into what it might have been like to study with one of the world’s greatest musicians.

Three works are for beginners; one for intermediate; and two for advanced levels. All are for pedal harp and two can also be played on the lever harp. Extensive information about ornamentation, phrasing, fingerings, dynamics, and piece-specific recommendations are also included. 


An article about this collection appears in the March/April 2024 issue of Harp Column magazine. Each of the six pieces are also available as individual PDFs through Harp Column Music. A print version of this collection is only available from Gotham Harp Publishing.
