Salzedo did NOT teach at the Juilliard School. Marcel Grandjany founded the harp dept at the Juilliard School in 1938 and taught there until his death in 1975>

Music

Works include "The enchanted isle" for harp and orchestra, concerto for harp and 7 wind instruments, "Preambule et jeux" for harp and chamber orchestra, sonata for harp and pianoforte and many pieces and arrangements for harp.

Norman Bishop <norman.bishop(at)norrkoping.mail.telia.com> adds: I thought you might like to add to your notes about Salzedo his wonderful virtuoso piece for the harp "Chanson dans la Nuit". It’s unusual since the harpist on occasion beats a rhythm on the harp with the hand.

Life

Salzédo was a French–American harpist/composer. He studied pianoforte and harp at the Paris conservatory. Went to New York at Toscanini’s invitation to become first harp at the Met Opera. Much intersted in modern music, he founded the International Composers’ Guild with Varèse, ed. "Eolus" and conducted many concerts. Salzédo became professor of harp at the Juilliard School in New York and the Curtis institute at Philadelphia.
