This album of A. Francis Pinto's pieces has been computer-engraved and reissued to enable harpists to enjoy playing and performing them again. They were originally published between 1917- 27. Some of the original arrangements available to us were difficult to read. The original publishers printed the pieces with scant pedal markings but with profuse dynamic markings that we no longer use or recognize today. Included is a companion CD performed by Gail R. Lyons of Syracuse, NY.

The arrangements reflect the way music of the time was performed - embellished, flowery, and very very harpistic. The recording is quite realistic, and you might even think it is Pinto himself playing. Many chromatics and pedal changes, scales, arpeggios, glissandos, rolled chords. Everything HARP. Full and beautiful arrangements reflecting the harmonic structure popular at the time. The Beethoven is in the key of Eb. Believe Me... Charms, Traumerei, Moonlight Sonata, Nearer My God to Thee, Largo (Handel).
