The pedal harp is a large and technically modern harp, designed primarily for art music and may be played either solo, as part of a chamber ensemble, or in an orchestra. It typically has a range of six and a half octaves (47 strings). The role of the pedals is to alter the pitch of the strings, so that it can easily play works written in any key.
