This project report serves as a resource to provide composers with the tools to tackle the complexities of writing for the harp. This will be achieved by considering the mechanical aspects of the harp, as well as analyze the strategies celebrated composers Maurice Ravel, Henriette Renié, and Carlos Salzédo employ in their own compositions to utilize the intricacies of the instrument to their advantage. Pieces discussed include: Ravel's Introduction et Allegro, Renié's Pièce Symphonique, Salzédo's Five Poetic Studies for Harp Alone and his arrangement of Claude Debussy's Children's Corner Suite. A list of reference and instructional books will be included in the appendix for further study.
