Quote from: Mandryka on February 03, 2023, 08:01:05 AMIt is a transcription, like Busoni made transcriptions. Or it's an arrangement, like Finnissy made arrangements. Take this by Gershwinhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfpzUTjBM88&ab_channel=PhillipPrimroseand this arrangement by Michael Finnissyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHJP_DoaCoA&ab_channel=TheClassicalFun
Quote from: Florestan on February 03, 2023, 08:19:37 AMWould it be possible to settle, once and for all, the matter of transcription and arrangement? Which one is which?The way I see it, transcription applies only from one solo instrument to another: say, a piano piece transcribed for solo violin or viceversa, or a concerto for flute and orchestra transcribed for oboe and orchestra. Arrangement applies for a piece in which the original instrumentation is altered not only in kind but also in number: a piano piece arranged for violin and piano (Ysaye-Chopin), a symphony arranged for piano duet (Liszt-Beethoven), an operatic aria arranged for piano (Thalberg-|Bellini).What say you?
Quote from: Dry Brett Kavanaugh on February 03, 2023, 08:26:40 AMSlightly related topics, but does anybody still improvise in Baroque/Bach music in live/recordings today? Do you comrades like it? I imagine improvisations could be well received even today, but a modification of compositions otherwise.
Quote from: Florestan on February 03, 2023, 09:10:35 AMI'm afraid, though, that improvisation in "classical" music is just as lost an art as that of writting letters.
Quote from: premont on February 03, 2023, 11:13:15 AMA lot of organists keep the art of improvising alive today.
Quote from: vers la flamme on Today at 01:15:22 PMTaking recs for something good of a pianist playing Bach. What I like is David Fray, Glenn Gould, András Schiff, Sviatoslav Richter etc. Though it's been a while since I've heard any of it.
