ELIAS PARISH ALVARS  

(1808 - 1849)

The English-born harpist Elias Parish Alvars, originally Eli Parish, was a pupil of Dizi and Bochsa and among the most distinguished harpists of his generation, developing new techniques of playing with Erard’s innovative double harp. He spent much of his career in Vienna.

Harp Music

Parish Alvars left some hundred compositions, many of them for the harp and offering a challenge to performers in view of their technical difficulty.
