The Concerto pour harpe et orchestre, was dedicated ta and premiered by French harpist and pedagogue Pierre Jamet with the Concerts Colonne (Paul Paray, conductor) on March 31, 1946. Jamet later became the harp professor at the Conservatoire de Paris in 1948. Decruck's Concerto shares similarities with Germaine Tailleferre's Sonate pour harpe. It is a concertino in style, light-hearted, wann, and fùll of surprises. At the premier performance by Concerts Colonne, Henry Malherbe from Les étoiles commented that the Concerto was "A work of lively and delicate feeling. A renowned harpist, Pierre Jamet has carved out a great success." Decruck must not have been fùlly satisfied, though. In her definitive score, she states that the original fourth movemen a fughetta, should be suppressed. This concerto was recorded in 2022 by harpist Chen-Yu Huang with the Jakson Symphony Orchestra and conductor Matthew Aubin (Claves Records 3046). Matthew AUBIN
