Judy Loman - to whom we owe so much - (if you're enjoying learning to play the harp with me, you do owe a good bit of that to her)  She's the Canadian grandmother of the harp, and a national treasure! 

And lest you're ready to throw in the towel, this was recorded 2 years ago. One year ago, she celebrated her 80th birthday in Toronto with a big recital.

Samantha Ballard was one of Elizabeth's studnets at UBC. If people are learning any of Elizabeth's pices, I send them to Samantha's recordings - a great reference.

But this is the Smetana's famous Moldau.  It was written for orchestra but harp transcriptions are very popular. If you love this, you can find a zillion more people playing it on YouTube.

It could get you saving up for pedal harp - just too chromatic for levers - and I don't say that easily
