Chords, passages, playing in octaves, figurations, arpeggios and glissandos are among the instrument’s most typical playing techniques. Because of the harp’s diatonic character longer chromatic passages can only be performed with great difficulty, if at all. In every register a series of three successive chromatic notes can be played with no change of pedal; four successive chromatic notes are possible four times; and five are only possible once.

It should be noted that a maximum of two pedals can be operated at the same time.
