Hinner, with the apparent simplicity of his opus 10, can thus regain his role in the harp repertoire of the eighteenth century, as well as covering a considerable didactic value today. The part of the first harp undoubtedly presents characteristics of greater rhythmic and virtuosic complexity than that of the second, which consists of a continuous accompaniment interspersed with simple thematic imitated episodes. Furthermore in the composition are included arias such as Ô ma tendre Musette, a French popular melody of the 18th century (previously set to music by Pierre-Alexandre Monsigny), and «Sentir avec ardeur», taken from the opéra-comique L’erreur d’un moment ou la Suite de Julie by Nicolas Dezéde, as well as themes from Gluck’s Iphigénie en Aulide, which had been all used also by Hinner’s first harp master, Francesco Petrini (1744-1819).
Hinner’s opus 10, originally written in separate parts for two harps, or harp and fortepiano, is presented here updated and completed with its score, for a thorough perception of the work.
