In Paris at the end of the 19th century,  an intense battle was raging  between two eminent harp manufacturing companies  with  each claiming superiority over their rival’s instrument.

Pleyel,  (makers of the unmechanical, cross-strung double harp)  claimed that theirs was the perfect chromatic instrument, capable of playing in  all keys with ease, and commissioned  Debussy to write his “Danses Sacreé et Profane”  to prove their point.

However, at the same time,  Erard & Co  were perfecting the mechanical double-action pedal harp which was invented by the founder of their firm, Sebastian Erard a century earlier. Not to be out-done by Pleyel, the  Erard  Company commissioned Maurice Ravel to compose “Introduction et Allegro” for harp, string quartet, flute and clarinet, and it was  given its first performance in 1905  by the distinguished French harpist, Lily Laskine.

History has proved that Erard & Co won this battle with flying colours! The Pleyel harp is rarely heard nowadays,  whereas every new concert pedal  harp is modelled on the original Erard patent. The quarrel  between the two Parisian firms left  a rich legacy  for posterity in the form of  two wonderful  chamber  music pieces for  harp by the most important  French Impressionist composers!

Marcel Tournier was one of France’s most influential and important harpist – composers and was Professor of Harp at the National Conservatoire in Paris for many years. He wrote prolifically for the harp in the impressionistic slightly romantic style.
