New York Harp Ensemble (NYHE), classical music ensemble founded by Aristid von Würtzler and his wife, Barbara Pniewska harpists. It has been operating between 1969 and 1997.

Aristid von Würtzler emigrated from Hungary into the United States in 1956. Initially, he played in orchestras (e.g. between 1958 and 1961 in the New York Philharmonic Orchestra), then he began his solo career. After a while he noticed that as a male performer he could not break into television in America. So he decided to establish his own harp ensemble that can display more spectacular and colorful shows. He took Mireille Flour's Belgian band as an example though tried to learn from their rapid fall which was due to the constant rivalry between the harpists.

He met his future wife in Geneva during a harp contest in 1969. The young and reclusive artist in the bud represented Poland. After the contest Würtzler offered the girl a scholarship in University of Hartford, where he was himself a professor. Barbara also came from a musical family, his father was a renowned violist in Warsaw. She started piano at six then switched to harp, and in 1964 graduated from the Academy of Music in Warsaw in the harp department.
