Poenitz – Phantasie for solo harp op. 45B


Genre: Romantic
Difficulty: 8-9
Pages: 13

Franz Poenitz was the oldest of the three harpists (the other two being Posse and HolĂ˝) employed by the busy Berlin Royal Court Orchestra at the end of the 19th century, and is barely remembered today, despite his wide range as a “complete musician” who also contributed greatly to another rare instrument, the harmonium. His music was conservative, in a heavy chordal style reminiscent of Brahms. but he was also a visionary taken with spooky harmonies, old myths and medieval lore, and who projected unique musical ideas onto his compositions.
